Ms. Brenda C Turner

My name is Brenda C. Turner and this is my sixteenth year of teaching. This will be my second year as the GATE teacher and GreenpowerUSA Coach at McDonnell Elementary. I look forward to working with you and your child as a team because working as a team, anything is possible. We are going to have an amazing year!

I live in Huntsville and I have a son name Byron and a daughter name Lakeisha. I have five grandsons that I love spending time with along with decorating, reading, and singing. I also teach New Member’s class, sing in the choir, and work with the youth at my church. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

I have taught in the Griffin-Spalding County School System in Griffin, Georgia for 5 years and 9 years in the Henry County School System where I received my Gifted Endorsement. I have taught kindergarten, first, third, fifth grade, and Early Intervention Program (EIP) in both reading and math. During those years, I have served students in SPED, Regular Ed, and Gifted. This begins my sixteenth year of teaching, and my second year in the Huntsville City School System where I am a Gifted Specialist. This will be my second year as the GATE teacher and Greenpower Coach at McDonnell Elementary.
