About Dr. Caryn Turner

I am the principal of Rex Mill Middle School. My years of experience in education have taught me to respect, defend, and foster the process of learning. While I am considered to be a veteran educator, I never feel I have all the answers. Every year I welcome new experiences, new perspectives, and new programs to serve my students and support my teachers. The philosophy of being a lifelong learner allows me to examine the learning process constantly which means I reflect often on my thinking and my actions. As an educator, I believe in empowering the struggling student with learning strategies to help him or her exceed expectations. I also believe in challenging the student who has found the work easy or boring so he or she learns new ways to develop ideas. So I feel it is my duty to equip all those who affect students’ learning with the resources and support required to do to this important work well.
