Katelyn Turnbull

Hi there! I'm Katelyn Turnbull and I am happy to be a part of the Horizon Middle School Staff. I teach 7th grade language arts and will also be coaching pom. I was born and raised in Akron, Ohio and attended Kent State University where I majored in Integrated Language Arts. I served my first year of teaching as an interventionist assisting students in preparing to pass their high school graduation test. I then moved to Glendale, Arizona and taught 10th grade and honors language arts. I also was the head varsity pom coach. I have spent the past 4 years teaching a variety of subjects (8th grade ELA, drama, dance and student council) and coaching my pom team in Queen Creek, Arizona. My teaching philosophy is that given the right tools and supports paired with student effort, all students can find success. I'm excited to begin this new chapter of teaching at HMS and get to explore my new home in Colorado Springs!
