Welcome to Mr. Turman's website

Hello, My name is Mr. Turman. I am from Thomson, GA, born and raised. This will be my fourth year at R. L. Norris Elementary School where I serve as a 4th grade teacher. I'm also a football and basketball coach at Thomson High School. I am a 2013 graduate of Edward Waters College (Jacksonville, FL). I'm blessed to be given the opportunity to teach your wonderful children each day.  I look forward to a productive partnership with each parent to ensure your child can achieve their highest potential.
I am so excited to begin the 2020-2021 school year. This year will be a little different than we are all used to, but I am eager to work with each and every one of you to ensure a fun-filled year of learning through rigorous instruction and relevant experiences. Please read my web page thoroughly so you'll be able to see what we have in store and whats NEW this year...
If there are any question, comments, or concerns feel free to email(quickest way) me or call...

 Communication between home and school is key to our success!!!
