About Mrs. Carla Turner...
Position: Honors English 10 and Honors Academic Decathlon
We're going to have a fantastic year!
My Education and Professional Background
A native Arizonan, I earned my BA in English Education at the University of Arizona. I then moved to Wisconsin where I taught for several years while earning a Master's in Education from Aurora University. Although I loved my years in the Midwest, my affinity for heat and sunshine led me back to Arizona in 1999. For the past 23 years, Hamilton High School has been my home, and I am proud not only of the English programs I helped to build, but also of the four-time state championship Academic Decathlon team I coached there. I am excited to bring 31 years of experience and a passion for teaching and coaching to ACP. Go Knights!
My Educational Philosophy
Laughter and learning go hand-in-hand, and my classroom reflects that. I have high expectations for all my students, but I also create a comfortable, inclusive environment where everyone is welcome and valued.
