Cathy Hurst has been in WISD for 25 years! She graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a specialization in Early Childhood. She started teaching First Grade in the fall of 1992 at Roark Primary School. The following year the district opened A.R Turner Elementary. She is one of the original faculty members to open this awesome building! It's a special place to be! :) Most of her career has been in First Grade (She did spend 4 fun years in Third Grade many years ago) and last year she "looped up" with her class to Second Grade!! She says, "Second Grade is a wonderful place to be!"
As well as teaching Second Grade, she also serves as the Second Grade team leader and co-sponsor of the Turner Newsflash!
