Mrs. Deborah Meylan
Hello Turner Students and Families,
I am very honored to be in my 7th year as the proud principal at Turner Elementary, and in my 30th year in education (all between Antioch and Pittsburg Unified). When not at school, l love to spend time with my family. My husband Phil has taught Kindergarten for over 30 years. I have 2 sons that make me very proud. Grant went to college at Santa Clara University and played colliegiate baseball and Scott is currently in college at North Carolina Central where he is playing baseball as well. I love taking pictures, doing crafts and DIY projects around the house, traveling and cooking/baking. I also love thinking of fun ways to celebrate our staff and students.
Turner is a special school filled with amazing students and families and a truly incredible staff. We work hard and we play hard. We find joy in being together and we celebrate our successes. At Turner we really do follow our motto - Be Kind, Be Safe and Be Responsible. If you are new to Turner, welcome! We know you find lots of happiness here. If you are returning, we are so glad to have you back!
Please know I am always here to help. Cheers to a great year.
