Christal Terry, 8th Grade English Teacher, Benjamin Turner Middle School

Ms. Terry has been teaching middle school students in the Mount Vernon City School District since 2005. She taught 7th grade for four years, but currently serves as an 8th grade English teacher at Benjamin Turner Middle School.

Ms. Terry completed her undergraduate studies at the City College of New York. She received her master’s degree in teaching English with a concentration in writing from Long Island University as well as an administration degree from the College of Saint Rose.

“Being a teacher is a huge responsibility,” said Ms. Terry. “I’m responsible for an entire academic year of a child’s life. Seeing a light bulb come on and witnessing a student’s excitement in understanding the foundation for which I’ve laid means I’ve accomplished what I’m supposed to. That makes me very happy.”
