I'm Dr. Turner - Welcome to my NYOS website!
 
Below you can find a little more information about me, and you can use this website for helpful links, such as a link to MyHomeworkApp (where you can find all assignments and updates for class).
 
I am a proud Longhorn, having completed my Bachelor's, Master's, and Ph.D. degrees at The University of Texas at Austin. I've been a teacher for six years, designing and instructing classes at UT in English Literature, American Literature, Banned Books, and Rhetoric & Composition. I also taught a Jane Austen literature course at Oxford University, where I led a study abroad program. 
 
I am a native Texan, but I love to travel, literally on earth and figuratively through books. As you may imagine, I'm an avid reader and can happily while away an afternoon reading a classic novel. But my primary socio-literary interests comprise non-fiction and literary non-fiction that tackle social issues such as poverty, race, gender equality, economics, and education.
 
I'm looking forward to being here at NYOS and will see you all in class!
