Ms. Turner was born and raised in Calgary and received her BA in Visual Arts and her BEd in Art Education from the University of Lethbridge. Prior to joining CAA, she taught in London, England as a Year 4 teacher. Ms. Turner believes her passion for creative exploration and self-discovery will support and nurture CAA’s Kindergarteners, allowing them to become happy, independent learners. In her spare time, she enjoys trying new cuisines and seeing as much of the world as possible – she’s been to over 20 countries and is still counting!
Sarah Humphrey is thrilled to be a part of the community and educational team at Calgary Arts Academy. From the age of three, Sarah demonstrated a passion for literature, dance, and music. In 2014 she became a mother and involved herself and her son in a family dance and music community in Edmonton. She has become an informed early childhood educator in programs that use creative expression, music, and movement. Sarah is also married to a writer, and is still waiting for that bestseller! She believes in using hands-on experiences, learning creatively, and is very excited for a fun-filled year with the new Kindergarten children!
