Ms. Derica Turner, M. Ed.

I am a proud Cedar Hill alumni! I graduated from Cedar Hill High School in 2003 after transferring from the Duncanville Independent School District.  I'm entering my 7th year in education and am proud to serve the students, teachers, and families of Lake Ridge Elementary as the Title I Instructional Coach and Parental Involvement Community Liaison. I began my career as a 7th grade Math Interventionist with Lancaster ISD. I have served on the Lake Ridge Campus as the Resource teacher and the 5th grade Science teacher/ Team Leader. In 2015 I was honored as the Cedar Hill ISD Elementary Teacher of the Year.  I am very passionate about teaching and learning, and I truly believe that all students have the ability to learn. It will be my mission this year to support the staff of Lake Ridge Elementary in uncovering the greatest potential of all our students!
