Alison

A TurnerMy name is Alison Turner and I am currently a teacher with Rocky View Schools facilitating Art, Metal Design and Humanities at Muriel Clayton Middle School in Airdrie, Alberta. 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 relaxed on the couch watching Grey’s Anatomy while snacking on guilt free popcorn.

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.
