Cheryl Smith Turner is an independent educational training consultant providing educators with the insight and tools for improved instructional strategies that contribute to a positive climate for learning.

She trains on various topics related to social-emotional learning, classroom management and child guidance, language/literacy development, play-based learning and support of dual language learners, to name a few.

A strengths-based school climate where relationships are cultivated, expectations remain high and students are taught to be thinkers is an environment where learners will succeed.
