Mrs. Melissa Turpin

I earned my BS in Elementary Education from the University of Kansas in 1993 and my MA in Curriculum and Instruction in 1997 from KU.  I have been teaching for twenty-five years with all of my experience being at New York Elementary in the intermediate grades.  I live in Lawrence with my husband Chris.  We have two children, Riley who will be a freshman in college, and our daughter Regan who will be a sophomore at LHS.  We have two dogs, a Golden Retriever Tucker and a Beagle named Lucy.  We enjoy being together and spend a lot of time at sporting events all year long.
