Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Maria Turner
I am so excited to be a part of South Elementary this year! Originally, I am not from Missouri. I was born and raised in Pennsylvania, but decided to make southwest Missouri my permanent residence upon graduation from Evangel University in 2001. My degree is in Special Education (K-12), as well as, Elementary Education (1-6). In addition to this degree, I have a Master's in Middle School Education from Drury University. This will be twelfth year teaching special education, and first year in the Ozark school district. In my spare time, I love playing with my two crazy little children and husband of fifteen years. When I am not at school, I enjoy watching and coaching my children in their sports and outdoor acitivites.
