HELLO! I am Paula Turnbow. This year, I am teaching 4th grade Reading and Writing. I have been in education for 33 years with 17 of those years at Mary Martin Elementary, Weatherford Independent School District. My classroom experience includes teaching first - fourth grades. For 18 years, I was a reading and math specialist, instructional specialist and an interventionist. I am a graduate of Tarleton State University where I have also taught education courses.
I love teaching! My goals for the students are: to instill a desire for reading and writing; and, for them to grow metacognitively, emotionally and socially. I understand how students learn and I plan to offer as many different ways to learn as possible.
My outside of school activities are centered around my 10 grandchildren or my church activities. I also continue my learning through reading, webinars, social media education groups, and researching for lesson planning.
The mission of Weatherford ISD is to TEACH, CHALLENGE, and INSPIRE, EACH student in a SAFE, NURTURING environment to SUCCEED in the global community.
