Ms. Sheila Turan
Hello! Welcome to my teacher page. My name is Sheila Turan and I am a 1st generation Bosnian-American. My family came to the United States in 1994 from Bosnia. I have one brother and a beautiful baby niece. I like to spend my time baking (my favorite dessert is Baklava!), cooking (my favorite food is Burek!), listening to music and spending time with my family.
I recently graduated with my Bachelor’s at Webster University, and am finishing up my Masters in TESOL there as well. During my time at Webster, I went to Leiden, The Netherlands to study educational systems and I also went to Spain to study Spanish and Spanish culture. I feel that the key to education is understanding one another and where we come from. As an ELL teacher, I hope to incorporate my students’ cultures into the classroom!
I have been a part of the Mason Dragons since 2015. I worked as an ELL tutor and am happy to continue working here as a new ESOL teacher. I am excited to be starting this school with Mason and I am looking forward to making this year GREAT!
