Turman Elementary School5

I attended Turman Elementary from 1993-1998. I remember it being a fantastic school. I also remember my third grade teacher following us to fourth grade. She made a huge impact on my life and I owe her a lot. She definitely did well since she became the principal later on. I also owe a lot to the Systems Administrator there who also taught in the Computer Lab. We ended up playing a lot of Age of Empires in the after school organization named the "tech crew." Such a great school.
I attended this wonderful school between 1990 and 1993 and it was a blast. Interesting enough, a fellow student there became my stepbrother in '93, which is awesome. Great school, great stuff (though I doubt the teachers that were there in '90 are still there).
While we are no longer living within the Turman boundaries, I have very fond memories of the time (K through 1st Grade) that my daughter did spend there. The teachers were wonderful, the principal is outstanding and the most telling sign of a great school is undoubtedly my daughter's statement at the end of 1st grade. When asked what her best experience during the year was, she replied that her teacher (Ms. Grauer) had taught her to love to read... and she still reads every night - without having to be asked to.
