     Hello everyone. My name is Douglas Turley and I grew up in Hartford City, IN, a small farm town in northeast Indiana.
 I attended Ball State University and majored in music performance with an emphasis in symphonic instruments. I've been playing bass since I was about 13 years old, and have been playing professionally for the last 10 years. I am now living in Moultrie, GA and pursuing a masters degree in Special Education from Valdosta State University. I have been  a substitute and full time teacher in many school districts and am looking forward to becoming a fully certified teacher.

     II have always had a passion for playing music and probably always will. After college I moved to Chicago, IL where I lived and played  for six years. I then moved to Las Vegas, NV where I made my living peforming for the past three years. I've been lucky enough to have performed with many world class musicians, including some very famous ones. I have played all over the country and in Europe and Mexico. My most recent role as a bass player was with Michael Grimm in Las Vegas. He is an extremely talented singer/songerwriter from Bay St. Louis, LA. I have many pictures and videos of my musical experiences and travels on myspace.com. My experience as a performer has helped in many ways when I'm in front of a classroom full of unruly students!

     I am particularly fond of teaching high school, as most days I feel like I'm still a 17 year old. I relate well to high school age kids and love to guide them in a positive direction whenever possible. While I was teaching full time while in Chicago, I found some very useful websites for teachers. Two of these sites are Teachers Corner and Free Lesson Plans. Both of these sites were very helpful for a green teacher fresh out of the gates! I look forward to teaching a high school level inclusion class, hopefully in math or science.
