B.S. – California State University, Long Beach

Mrs. Turner was born and raised in Long Beach, CA before moving to Corona in 1999. She graduated from Cal State Long Beach with a BS in Finance and went on to obtain a K-8 Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. She met her husband of 28 years on the ski slopes of Bear Mountain. They have two adult daughters, Rylee (24) and Reece (20), and a son Rhett (12). Rylee and Reece attended Crossroads in later years while Rhett has been attending since preschool.

Mrs. Turner had a passion for teaching since she was in grade school. Her teachers would often give her the extra “ditto” sheets from class so she could play school on her front porch with the neighbor kids. She would read, teach math, or assign homework to any willing participant. Mrs. Turner received her teaching credential from CSULB nearly 25 years ago. However, she and her husband decided she would stay home with their kids until they were grade school age. God had different plans for her teaching passion, so she homeschooled her daughters throughout elementary school until they attended Crossroads. It wasn’t until her oldest daughter was a learner at Crossroads Christian High School that Mrs. Turner returned to a classroom as the adviser of Yearbook Design & Publication at CCHS. She started with a small yearbook club staff of three learners, but seven years later it has grown to a UC Approved Fine Arts course with a team of 20 learners. Mrs. Turner has thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the Collaborative  21st-Century Learning Environment at Crossroads.

What does a God-first school mean to her? Being at a God-first school means seeking God in everything we do. As facilitators, we can demonstrate His love in our actions and words. We work to integrate His Word in every aspect of our day. Colossians 3:17 “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
