Welcome to my page! My name is Mrs. Jill Turner. I am the media specialist and the AIG Consulting Teacher for Central Elementary School. I have been a media specialist for 8 years and an AIG Consulting Teacher for 2 years. My education includes a BA from Wheaton College (IL), a Masters in Library Science from ECU, and Gifted Certification from Barton College and lots of seminars in the most awesome and exciting topics, like STEM, project based learning, and developing literacies. I love learning new things and hope to inspire my students to be curious, explore and create!

Battle of the Books
Is a 4th & 5th grade competitve team of up to 12 members and a support team of up to 12 members. Together these students read 10 books along with students from teh other elementary schools in the district. Each spring the competing teams answer questions demonstrating their knowledge about the books read. CES Eagles have soared to victory in previous years and we hope to again!
AIG & Talent Development
AIG policies can be found on our district website. At CES, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to challenge and develop students talents and skills! If your student has been identified for the AIG or Talent Development programs, please check their Google Classroom(s) daily. The activities are designed to give students experiences and challenges that inspire critical thinking and problem solving. Their individual goals are integrated into research based strategies to help them develop their skills and talents. We frequently involve student in problem based inquiry. Our theme this year is developing an understanding of our global community and its varied needs.
Note: The constraint on all projects is that all materials must be found at home. Do not go out and buy materials for any projects, rather adapt the materials available in your home to complete the project. The more creative, the better.
