SUBMITTED Person High School Teacher of the Year Greg Turner is shown here with students. SUBMITTED Person High School French Teacher Greg Turner was named Person High School Teacher of the Year. Turner started his teaching career at PHS eight years ago and loves — not only the job, but also teaching french. Turner teaches French I-IV.

“I like watching the students learn another language, and I like the relationships I develop with my students,” Turner said.

Turner is humbled to receive this award. “I was a little surprised to be honest, perhaps because of the relationships I build with my students and the rapport I have with them and there is a lot of learning that goes on in the classroom,” Turner said. “It was a humbling experience, because there are lots of really good teachers in this school”.

“Mr. Turner is a really good teacher,” student Jazmin Ibarra said. “He gives us assignments that are fun in a way that we can still learn. The way he teaches is really good. He will go over things and then give us assignments”.

Ibarra has taken French I, II, III and is currently enrolled in IV. “His projects and homework [aren’t] something you will complain about,” Ibarra said. “They are fun and you get to learn at the same time. I highly recommend taking his classes because he is really good with all of his students.”
