Ms. Betty Turner

It is an honor to serve as principal at Baron DeKalb (BDK) Elementary-A small school with a BIG heart where everyone excels! Before joining the BDK Family, I served as the assistant principal at Camden Elementary for six years. My professional teaching career began at Irwin Avenue Open Elementary School in Charlotte, North Carolina. I returned home to Kershaw County in 1990 to work as the counselor for three elementary schools (BDK, Midway & Antioch, 1990-1992).  I was also the counselor at  Lugoff Elementary from 1992-1994.  I left Kershaw County for a brief period and returned in 1997 to serve as the counselor at the Continuous Learning Center (CLC). I have also worked at the Management Alternative Middle School in Charlotte and at Shaw Heights Elementary in Sumter.
