Get to Know Ms. Thurman!
Feature Teacher: Mrs. Thurman
Mrs. Thurman went to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, where she earned her Bachelor’s in education. Before coming to Sale Creek, she taught at Soddy Daisy High School, East Lake Middle School, and Soddy Elementary. When I asked, “What is your favorite part about being a teacher?” she replied, “ I love that I get to come to work everyday and learn something new.” Mrs. Thurman teaches many subjects, but her favorite to teach is government. She enjoys studying and teaching about the history of our government, as well as current government issues.
Despite popular belief, teachers have a life outside of school! Did you know that Mrs. Thurman loves to travel? She has traveled to many places, such as Costa Rica, London, and Hawaii. She loves the destinations as well as the journeys. Mrs. Thurman shared with me a great deal about her education in high school. It was in high school that she realized she wanted to be a teacher. She said, “ I wanted to fill in the holes that were in my high school education.” Her desire is to help students plan for their futures and give them strong educational foundations.
