Mrs. Lucy Turnbaugh
Hello, my name is Mrs. Lucy Turnbaugh and I am an English Language Arts teacher here at New Bridge Middle. I am originally from Burlington, VT, way up north, but I have relocated to North Carolina due to my husband's career in the Marine Corps. I have been teaching high school for the last five years in Florida and Texas and I am excited about starting my journey in middle school.
I studied for my undergraduate degree at Keene State College, obtaining a B.A. in English and Secondary Education. I finished my Master's degree in 2022, obtaining an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of West Florida. During all of my schooling and years of teaching, I have maintained a passion for writing engaging curricula and a love for building strong relationships with students to show students that they are capable of great things beyond the classroom.
I am excited about joining the New Bridge Middle School family this year and am looking forward to getting to know each of my students and families!
Outside of work, I spend most of my time outdoors: playing with my dogs, going to the beach, biking, running, and hiking. My dogs mean EVERYTHING to me, so students will know them almost as well as they will know parts of speech by the end of the year!
