Hello I am Whitney Turner, a native of Richlands NC.  I grew up in Richands and graduated from Richlands High School in 1987.  I pursued BA degree in Psychology in 1996 and began my career as a case manager for the developmental disabilities population with Mental Health.  I worked in this area for 7 years and then I became a member of service management and began monitoring health plans for 1 1/2.  In 2006, I made a career move and began teaching at RHS.  I taught the mild/moderate Occupational students for 1 1/2 years and then transfered to the moderate/severe population. I love teaching this population because they are so eager to learn.    I have a 20 year old daughter, Cassidy, who graduated from RHS last year and is a Junior at UNCW.  I love to read, go to the beach, travel, exercise and spend time with family and friends.  I have a wonderful personality who cares deeply for children and young adults.
