David Turnbull

My name is Dave Turnbull. I was born and raised in Yorkshire, North-East England, where I graduated from the University of Hull with a bachelor’s degree in Marine Biology. I moved to Colorado at the end of 2010, after a year living and working as a scuba dive guide in Mexico. I currently live in Boulder with my wife, Amy, and our dog, Aldo. I am thrilled to be a part of the Blue Mountain community, it is an exciting place to learn and grow for students and teachers alike. I love to challenge my students to be creative, inquisitive and to solve problems in unique ways. I like to encourage some academic risk-taking in my classroom. Getting things wrong, reflecting upon our mistakes, and improving for the future is an integral part of the learning process.


Outside of the classroom, I enjoy, camping, hiking, biking, running, skiing and practicing Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
