"I think the most exciting thing for me about teaching is when students and their families realize that education is NOT all about memorizing facts and regurgitating them on test day. Learning can be engaging; learning can and should be fun."
-Katie Turner

Veritas Classical Academy Welcomes New 1st/2nd Grade Teacher, Kathryn Turner
June 11, 2015
Marietta, Ohio

VERITAS Classical Academy is pleased to welcome Miss Kathryn Turner to the faculty in 2015-16.   Miss Turner will teach 1st/2nd grades.  She is from Vienna, West Virginia and earned her Bachelor's Degree in Education from Marietta College.  Miss Turner has taught at Williamstown Elementary School and Washington Elementary School.

"It is wonderful to find homegrown talent, and Katie Turner certainly fits the bill.  She has a terrific aptitude for classroom management and for engaging students in our rich curriculum content," commented Mr. Ben Rutherford, Headmaster of the Academy.  

Classical education draws multiple disciplines into every lesson. Therefore, a classical teacher must be prepared to weave math into history and science into language arts in creative ways.  This is one of the aspects that most interested Miss Turner about joining Veritas Classical Academy. "If we, as teachers, incorporate varied styles and techniques we can reach our students on an entirely different level.  We can encourage them to think for themselves, to question and to learn.  Sparking that curiosity and desire to learn is probably my favorite aspect of teaching," said Turner.

Miss Turner is looking forward to the freedom of teaching for the sake of learning, rather than "teaching to the test."  She is also pleased with the Academy's small class sizes. "The small class size offers a wonderful opportunity for individual attention, a rarity in most classrooms today," she said.

Miss Turner has a wide range of interests outside of teaching.  She enjoys reading and writing, attending and supporting the performing arts, and competing in trivia challenges.  Miss Turner is very involved in the community as a soccer and cheerleading coach in Vienna and as a volunteer for various local organizations.

Miss Turner will be married this summer, and she and her husband will live in Vienna, West Virginia.
