Hello! My name is Jessica Turmon. This will be my 8th year in teaching. I began my teaching career in Las Vegas for 6 years and I’ve spent 1 year teaching English in China. Teaching has always been a passion of mine. Helping students learn and grow is very rewarding. I believe that all students can learn despite any disabilities or challenges they may face. When teachers, students, and parents connect and work together; magic can happen in student learning. This year 2nd grade will focus on using academic vocabulary in speaking and writing, student monitoring and taking responsibility for their learning, and striving for excellence in academics and character development. I am so excited to work with students here at Dunbar Elementary! As Dunbar Eagles, we will soar to new levels!
