Hello there my name is Megan Turpin and it is my privilege of being your child’s elementary Principal at Riverview. I would like to welcome you all to what I am sure will be an AMAZING school year. I am excited to announce this is my 12th year with the outstanding De Soto school district. I previously worked at Belmont elementary as a teacher for 9 years and split my time the following two years between Riverview and Horizon elementary as the school's Improvement Specialist. If you haven’t been able to tell yet, Desoto has a firm place in my heart!
I graduated from Emporia State University earning my Elementary Education degree and come from a family of educators. I also have my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership and Administration from the University of Kansas. ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK! My husband and I currently live in Gardner Kansas…we are trying to make it up this way…but phew that market! We live there with our 3 dogs and fun and energetic 5 year old daughter Savannah…who will be starting Kindergarten this fall at Riverview!
We are going to learn and accomplish so many new and exciting things this school year. Please know that I encourage you to reach out when questions or concerns arise. This only best helps me in assisting to provide your child a positive educational experience. I will always do my best to get back to you at my early convenience….but as we all know we never know what the day will bring in education. So please do not be a stranger. Make sure to introduce yourself and your family and reach out via email or give me a call!
