7th & 8th Grades

Hello, my name is Eddie Turner and I will be your 7th and 8th grade teacher here at GAA. Although I have been a substitute teacher here for the past two years, I have now the privilege and opportunity to join the staff full time!

I am a 2nd generation Adventist, my mother was a life-long Sabbath schoolteacher and my father was a Baptist Minister whose studies led him to become an Adventist Elder. They raised me with one overriding notion: Should the entire world turn against you, God will never leave you, forsake you, or fail you. Trust in Him.

This background is the basis for my view of the world. God first, and everything else revolves around Him.

Academically, I am a graduate of Grand Canyon University with a Masters degree in Christian Studies, emphasizing in pastoral leadership and youth ministry. The students here at Glenview have had a great foundation from previous teachers and it is my goal to hold to and build upon that foundation.

It is my hope and goal for all my students that they are successful and are able to realize their full potential. There is material that you must know to prepare you for high school; there are also things I want to guide you through to prepare you for life.

-       The most important thing in this world is having a real, functional and true relationship with Christ. When He parts the clouds upon His return, He is not looking for those on the Deans list, He will come for those who know and love Him.

-       It is important that we teach our youth how to think, not what to think. The ability to critically think takes practice.  It is a skill to be honed, assessed and tested.

-       The ability to read, write and comprehend and assess are all tied into the same package.  Your capabilities become limited when you are ineffective at this. I want all my students to be able to express themselves effectively.

I want to have fun this year implementing the new technology we have available here at GAA. It is my goal and desire to create the best learning environment we can so students can enjoy the process of growing up Godly.

So come on, get enrolled and let’s go! Let us learn and grow together!
