About Myself

Welcome to 5th Grade!!!!! My name is Becky Turner and I will be your 5th grade science teacher. While this will be my 27th year teaching, it will be my 10th year of teaching fifth grade science. Prior to that, I taught math/science for 17 years in 3rd grade. I love teaching science and seeing my students' faces light up when they make connections with real life science in their everyday lives.

I grew up in Deer Park and went to Carpenter Elementary, Deepwater Jr High, and DPHS. After graduating high school I graduated from U of H - Clear Lake with a bachelors degree in accounting and a masters degree in Elementary Education.  I have 2 brothers and 6 sisters who have blessed me with 19 nieces and nephews. We all have grown up here and still live in the Houston area. In fact, my mom still lives in the house I grew up in!
 
I have 2 daughters. Amber is 34 and works as a surgical tech. She has 3 precious children - Colton (5 years) and her twins, McKayla and Madisyn (3 years). Natalie is 31 and works at Kinder Morgan as an Administrative Assistant. She has 2 amazing kids - Brady (12 years old and a 7th grader at Fairmont Jr High) and Brooklyn (6 and a 1st grader at Fairmont Elementary). I do have a few cats at home, but they truly belong to my daughters. :)

I am looking forward to a new year full of adventures and learning more about the students that I have the privilege to teach. Your last year at Dabbs is going to be AMAZING!!!!!
