Teacher Information (copy and past bio information)

Professional:  My name is Lisa Turk, and this will be my 10th year as an elementary teacher, which is actually my second career.  I was in the field of sports medicine for about 10 years before getting licensed as an elementary teacher.  I earned a B.S. in Athletic Training from the University of North Dakota, and a M.Ed. in Educational Administration from Arizona State University.  I worked in the Sports Medicine Department at ASU for 5 years, and also at the University of Illinois for 4 years, coordinating the evaluation, treatment and rehab of injuries for various sports teams, and taught courses in the exercise science departments at both universities.

We moved to Colorado in 2005, and I worked at Berthoud High School for 2 years as their athletic trainer while I finished my teaching certificate.  I taught 5th, 3rd, and Kindergarten over the course of 6 years at Madison Elementary in Greeley, and then 1st grade at Resurrection Christian School in Loveland for 3 years. 

Personal:  My husband Jim, our son Jon (5th grade) and I live in Windsor.  We love animals, and have 3 dogs, a cat, a turtle, and a hamster.  I like the outdoors, hiking, camping, photography, reading, and spending time with my family.  I am a vegetarian, and love to travel.

Why I teach:  Sports Medicine was my passion ever since high school.  While at Arizona State, I met a young man who was a real inspiration to me.  He went on to play in the NFL, and gave up a multi-million dollar contract to join the army and do something more important with his life than playing a game.  When he was killed in Afghanistan, it challenged me to clarify my mission in life.  I wanted to do something that would make a true difference, and felt called into teaching.  I love impacting kids' lives, helping them to develop a lifelong passion for learning and following their dreams.
