I have 29 years of teaching experience in elementary education. Most of my experience has been in Young County and Palo Pinto County. I taught from 1999 to 2012 in Graham at both Crestview Elementary and Woodland Elementary. I have recently returned from teaching overseas in Abu Dhabi, UAE. I taught grades 2 and 3 in Abu Dhabi for 7 years. I am excited to be back home teaching in Graham.
I live at Possum Kingdom Lake and love to spend time on the water. I have two beautiful children who both graduated from Graham High School. My daughter, Haley Turpin, is a graduate of Texas A&M and lives in Houston, Texas. My son, Skyler Turpin, is a graduate of Howard Payne University and lives in Austin, Texas.
I love to spend time on the water. I love swimming, snorkeling, and boating. Reading is another of my favorite hobbies.
