My name is Rosaland Turner and I am the Principal at Hawking STEAM Charter School 1. In my role as the leader of the school, I will work to improve the academic and social-emotional curriculum of the school, collaborate with the staff to help facilitate professional learning and school improvement initiatives, and coordinate building operations and daily routines. I am committed to working with teachers and families to provide the type of learning environment where all students can find success.
