Mrs. Paris Turner

Hello! I am Paris Turner and I am the chorus teacher at H.J. MacDonald. I am from Hickory, NC and I graduated from Lenoir Rhyne University. I moved to Newport, NC in July of 2021 and I love it here! I also got married in July of 2021! I have a micro-pig named Babe, and I had a golden lab named Holly, but unfortunately she passed away a few months ago. My husband and I are the bestest friends and we live on our family farm. Music has always been a safe place for me and I want that for my students. I am very excited to create beautiful music with all of you. I promise you will have a fun time in the music classroom! I hope you decide to join chorus and be part of the family! Chorus is not just a class, it is a family! I can not wait to sing with you soon!



Degrees: BA in Music, Masters of Arts in Teaching
