Welcome to third grade! My name is Tanya Turner and I will teach reading, writing, and social studies this year. I have the privilege of working with an awesome third grade team.This is my 14th year at Oyster Creek Elementary. Ten of those fourteen years I worked as the kindergarten aide. Working with chidren has been something that I have always found rewarding. I made the decision to go back to school and get my degree in elementary education and am now a classroom teacher. I love teaching and watching children grow and learn especially here at OCE!
I have a wonderful husband and five children -three girls and two boys. Four of my five chidren have all graduated from FBISD schools. My two oldest daughters have graduated from college and my youngest daugher will be a junior at the University of Texas at Austin in the fall. My youngest, my son, will be a junior in high school. Family and teaching are very important to me. I strive to instill a life long love of learning in all my students. I love being a parent as well as an educator.
I look forward to working with your students and getting to know each one of them. My goal for your students is to help them achieve their full potential through positive and engaging interactions in the classroom. Communication with parents is key to student success. Please don't hestitate to contact me with questions or concerns. I look forward to a great year with your students!
