A TurnerMy name is Alison Turner and I am currently on a one year leave from Rocky View Schools to finish my M.Ed at the University of Calgary. I have facilitated CTS courses including Art, Photography, Metal Design as well as developed inquiry based and cross-curricular Humanities courses for grades seven and eight. When I am not playing with my two boys Jack and Everett, spending time with family and friends, or researching for grad school, you can find me either doing hot yoga or spin, or relaxing watching Jerry Seinfield’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.




Love-ladden mission of mine

To continually strive to become a better educator…to never reach a state of contentment because I can and will always learn every single day…to question the “why?” of things…to be inspired…to guide learners to understand their own lives in relation to all that surrounds.

“To be awake is to take risks, to see things that you probably would not want to see. We have to teach that—an awareness, a courage to see. Without it, we’ll just be for profit, and not for meaning.” Maxine Greene.
