Mrs. Turbyville is an accomplished Catholic school administrator with professional experience in both Catholic and public schools. She began her educational career as a middle school English, social studies, and religion teacher at Sacred Heart Cathedral School. During the ten years of service, she became the lead middle school teacher as the academic dean. Following her tenure at Sacred Heart, she devoted herself to serve children and families by working with non-profit agencies to assist at-risk students and build support groups for families.

She is a parishioner of the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and a parent and grandparent of Sacred Heart Cathedral School and Knoxville Catholic High School alumni.
As a professional educator with twenty-nine years of experience, she has served schools in various teaching and administrative roles. While she serves our school this year, the Principal Search Team will continue to seek the candidate for Principal for a long-term commitment to the school.
I know that you will join us in welcoming Mrs. Turbyville to the position of Principal.
