Turner, Tom (English)

Greetings students and families!

Thank for visiting my page on the Owen High website.  
Though not a native of North Carolina, I have called the mountains home since 1998.  I feel fortunate to live in this beautiful area and to teach at this wonderful school.  When I am not teaching or grading essays, I enjoy reading (mostly Dickens), playing disc golf, traveling, and hanging out with my awesome family.
