Hello! My name is Adrienne Turner and I will be teaching Passport Reading 
this year. This is my fourth year at Deer Creek Elementary. I taught 4th 
grade for two years and I am very excited about teaching reading again this 

I grew up in Edmond, Oklahoma and I graduated from the University of Oklahoma 
with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education along with 
certification to teach intermediate social studies and mathematics. Before 
teaching at Deer Creek I was an in-school math and reading tutor at Orvis 
Risner Elementary in Edmond, Oklahoma. I am currently working on my Master’s 
Degree in Reading at the University of Central Oklahoma and I will graduate 
in December!

I got engaged this past summer! My fiance and I will be getting married on 
November 3, 2012. I love spending time with my family and friends. When I am 
not in my classroom I enjoy reading, listening to music, and cooking. When I 
have time I also like to take dance classes. I feel so fortunate to be a part 
of this wonderful school with the best kids and parents that I’ve ever had 
the pleasure of meeting!

I knew very early that I wanted to be a teacher. I love children and I love 
opening their eyes to the world around them. It is my goal to teach every 
child to be a lifelong learner and to find an appreciation for reading. I 
expect all my students to put forth their best effort in everything they do! 
I believe that a huge part of your child’s success is cooperation between 
parent and teacher. Together we can make this year fun and successful! Please 
feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns. I can’t 
wait to start a fantastic year full of reading!
