Mrs. Crystal Turney


My name is Crystal Turney, and I am the Instructional Technology Facilitator here at Irvin. 

I received a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology from Queens University in Charlotte. After college, I returned to my hometown of Greensboro to work with children at the Guilford County Health Department. During this time, I was encouraged to pursue my dream of becoming a teacher. I returned to Charlotte and received my teaching certification and Masters of Elementary Education from UNC-Charlotte. I have been a part of Cabarrus County Schools for 25 years.

I have been married for 26 years and have a daughter who is a senior at Western Carolina. Go CATS! I also have a son. The love and joy he brought to our family will never be forgotten. I enjoy reading children's literature, traveling to new places, and spending time with friends and family.  


It is my mission to:

  • Support excellence in instruction for all students at Irvin.
  • Inspire and participate in Irvin’s vision of integrating technology.
  • Collaborate and assist teachers in using technology effectively to engage students with rigorous, relevant, and engaging instruction.
