Hello 4th graders and families!  I am looking forward to this amazing year with you in our new home at Tahoma Elementary School.  We will be doing our creating, sharing, learning, and laughing together in Room 325 this year.

A little about your teacher Mrs. Turner


 I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you.  My name is Melissa Turner.  This will be my thirteenth year teaching.  I am so excited to be teaching along side the amazing new staff of Tahoma Elementary school under the leadership of Mr. Gaston.  The educators and support staff of TES make this school the best place to be for learning and fun! 

I live in Maple Valley with my husband, Matthew.  We enjoy camping, reading, gardening, bass fishing, going on road trips and attending Mariners games!  We have two cats (Lalanie and Kitty) and two goats (Dragon and Nighthawk) who keep us very busy along with some neighbor horses who hang out in our pasture.

I truly love teaching children and am looking forward to working with fourth graders this year.  I feel this year will be a time for exploration of ideas, pursuing interests, and growing skills that will support each student in becoming life-long learners.  As a team, we (teacher, family, and child) can make this one of the best years of your child’s education.  There will be many opportunities for you to support our classroom and become involved with your child’s daily life in the classroom. 

Please don't hesitate to contact me with questions at any time!
