Heather Turner

I am excited to be joining the Beechwood Middle School family this year! I am a graduate of the University of South Carolina Upstate with a Bachelor's of Science in Education with a concentration in Biology and General Science. Later, I continued my studies at Converse College where I earned a Master's of Education in Gifted and Talented Education. I began teaching in 1998 and have since taught in various gifted and talented programs across the state, middle grades science at a gifted and talented magnet school, and most recently, 7th and 8th grade science in Greenville, SC. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, reading, and spending time with my husband, Michael, and our two children, Ellie and Drew. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year. I am looking forward to a fun year of learning together!
