•      I am Turner Renick Till. This is my third year teaching English. I taught two years at Pickens County High School. I taught 7th-9th grade and loved it so much. I got married this summer to the love of my life. He works in Birmingham, so I had to find a closer job since we live in Midfield. I am so glad I am at Echols Middle School. 7th graders are so much fun and think about things so much differently than other people. 

         I grew up with an English teacher for a mother. I always though she was crazy for teaching 7th grade. I didn't know why. Then my first job was teaching them and I fell in love. I used to hate reading and didn't understand why anyone loved it. Then I found the right book, and I understood. I believe everyone just needs the right book. I hope this lets you get to know me better. If you have any questions feel free to email me at tarenick@tcss.net or schedule a meeting during my planning period during 3rd.
