Hello Knights! My name is Adrianne Turnbow and I am a school counselor at Oak Park Preparatory Academy. This is my third year as a school counselor. I received my bachelor's degree from Wayne State University in Elementary Education. After completing my bachelor's degree, I worked as a classroom teacher within the Detroit Public School system for five years. From these experiences, I decided to pursue a degree that would allow me to help children become more successful students, work with them to help them effectively deal with a variety of problems and inspire them to do their personal best in their lives. I graduated from Grand Valley State University with my Master’s in Education with a major in counseling. I believe all students should have access to a high quality-education and I am committed to helping all students reach their full academic, social, and emotional potential. I am excited to work with all the students and families at OPPA and look forward to meeting all of you.
