Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Sharon Turner. I am super excited to be part of the Visual Arts and Technology Team at SCCA!
I grew up, mainly, in San Diego. At the age of 19 I moved to LA where I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Visual Communication from California State University, Long Beach. I worked in the corporate communications field for 25 years as a professional Graphic Designer/Art Director for various industries; from e-learning to fashion for clients such as GE, Lexus and CABi -to name just a few.
My mom graduated from Porterville high in 1956 and my grandmother in 1936. I recently moved here to Porterville to help my family. Porterville was always just a family destination for the holidays for me until 2016 when my husband and I moved here to to help my mom with my dad who had Alzheimer’s. Unfortunately, we lost him in March 2016.
This will be my 1st official year of teaching. I started subbing last August and then transitioned into a full time position at SCCA.
I look forward to working with the SCCA students to help them to think creatively. I hope to help them have higher expectations for themselves and to strengthen their identity through collaboration, exploration and flexible/creative thinking. I enjoy being a part my students live’s and think of them as my kids. I know becoming a young adult can be difficult and I strive to make the transition easier and hopefully, a little fun for them.
