Dear Turman Families,
I am looking forward to returning for the 2022-2023 school year as the principal at Turman Elementary School. My name is Jana Thomas, and this will be my 19th year working for Harrison School District #2. I received my bachelor’s degree from the University of Northern Colorado and my master’s degree from Argosy University out of Denver. I spent twelve years as a classroom teacher, teaching all grades K-5. I was also a literacy coach for two years before moving into administration.
I am originally from western Nebraska but have lived in Colorado for over twenty years with my husband. We have two daughters and two granddaughters. As a family, we enjoy camping, hiking, and playing board games. I also enjoy reading, scrapbooking, and gardening when time allows.
I have loved being at Turman for the past five years working with the amazing staff and getting to know all the wonderful students and families. I am excited about the opportunity to meet the needs of our students and families as we continue to build meaningful relationships and give students the strong start they need to be successful with wherever life may take them.
Jana Thomas, Principal
My name is Mickee Witt and I am thrilled to be joining the Turman family as your Assistant Principal. I am honored to continue working in D2 and am excited to work with all of you! Turman has made amazing strides to help all students achieve-I am overjoyed that I am getting to be a part of this journey with all of you! I am passionate about helping all students reach their full potential inside and outside of the classroom.
My bachelor’s degree is in TESOL (Teaching English to Students of Other Languages), my Master of Education degree is in Instructional Design, and my Educational Specialist degree is in Educational Leadership. Outside of work, I love spending time with my friends and family. In my downtime I enjoy hiking, trying new recipes, and reading or listening to a new book!
