Andrea Turner


IMG_1678Andrea Turner is very excited to be joining the Two Rivers community this Fall! She lives in the neighborhood and has been watching the school develop and grow from the outside! Andrea grew up in Chicago and is an avid Cubs fan, (World Series Champs, Finally!) She loves the city of Chicago but always knew a slower pace and more time outdoors would serve her well.  She went to college in a small town in central Illinois called Quincy. After getting a degree in Applied Behavioral Sciences, Andrea decided to pursue Special Education and went right to work on her masters.  Her love for working with children of all abilities came from her mom who is a physical therapist in schools. Upon graduating again, Andrea worked in Quincy as a Special Education teacher for multi-needs students in grades 7-9. She worked in that position for 6 years before making the tough decision to relocate to the Roaring Fork Valley to be with her now husband, Eric. Andrea loves all living things, including plants, (avid gardener) and pets including her two dogs; Moose and Stella. Andrea is finishing up her third year at Basalt High School as a Special Ed. Teacher. Although she loves her high school students, she is looking forward to working with younger kids again and is very excited about the many cool opportunities to explore and learn in a student centered environment.  When Andrea is not teaching you might find her cooking, hiking, walking her dogs, reading, enjoying live music, traveling, watching baseball or skiing (a recent adventure.)
