The Academy

Lori Turpin - 2nd Grade

 I was born and raised in Pocatello, Idaho. I graduated from Idaho State University with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with a Library Science/Reading endorsement.  I'm married to Jim and we have 4 beautiful daughters.   As a family we enjoy taking trips, watching BYU football, and just relaxing at home.   I love to read, take walks, cook, garden, and teach 2nd grade.  I raised my daughters for 12 years before coming back to work in 2006.  I started my teaching career at Connor Academy teaching Kindergarten for 9 years.  I moved to 2nd grade in 2015 and love this new grade. This will by my 11th year teaching at this wonderful school.  I'm happy to be a part of such a loving community.
