    From the Principal

    My name is Dr. Teresa Turner, and I am honored to serve as principal at Carver-Lyon Elementary School.  I began my career in education as a teacher in a daycare center in North Carolina.  After completing my Masters degree in Elementary Education, I worked as a public school classroom teacher in various grade levels: kindergarten, first, second, fourth, and fifth.  I received my Doctorate in Educational Leadership at UNC-Chapel Hill, where I also taught both undergraduate and graduate courses.  After moving to South Carolina, I served as an Assistant Principal and Principal in Charleston County.  For the past two years I worked as a Principal here in Richland School District One.

    I have had the pleasure of working as a Principal in schools with strong magnet components: International Baccalaureate and Montessori.  Over the past four years I completed post-doctoral work around Leadership in Turn-Around Schools and Global Education at Harvard University.  This year, I am looking forward to leading the Language Immersion Program here at Carver-Lyon where we will offer Mandarin Chinese and Spanish!

    My husband and I are world travelers, but we absolutely love calling Columbia, SC, home.  My interests outside of school include reading, watching cooking shows, doing yoga, and spending time with my family.
