Meet Cheryl Turner, Ed. S., M. Ed.
Cheryl Turner is a lifelong educator, having spent 18 years teaching in the classroom and then spent 19 years training students at the university level to become teachers. Cheryl would instruct undergraduate and graduate students about language and literacy methods, but she realized the importance of guiding children’s behavior as the foundation for learning. This realization led her to start her own consulting company that provides educators with insight and training that contributes to a positive climate for learning, effective instructional strategies, and improved learner performance.
Cheryl is passionate about sharing her knowledge with others. She has presented at events nationwide in social-emotional development, classroom management, child guidance, language and literacy development, play-based learning, and critical thinking skills for dual language learners.
Cheryl engages participants with her high-energy training style that combines humor with common sense strategies and impactful, relevant content.
