About Mr. Turner

jt_photo2I am in my fourth year at Thunder Valley K8 in Frederick, Colorado, where I teach visual arts, advise our student yearbook staff, and coach soccer and wrestling.

My goal as an art teacher is to infuse fine art projects with relevant, 21st century concepts and processes specific to creative industries that take advantage of technology available to my students. While teaching I continue my first career as a Graphic Designer, and I frequently reference my personal and professional work for lesson inspiration.

I’m originally from New Jersey, and have been in Longmont, Colorado for the past 5 years with my awesome wife, two rad daughters, and two dogs.
