Mr. Robert Turriff
I am excited to return to Coker for my 5th year as the music teacher. I love being a part of the Coker community and helping grow the music program. I believe every student has the ability to make music through singing, saying, playing and moving. I am now a certified Orff-Schulwerk teacher and love to incorporate the Orff process in my classroom.
I was born in Valdosta, Georgia into a military family. I have lived all over the United States including Georgia, Texas, Montana and Maryland. I graduated high school from John Paul Stevens High School in Northside ISD here in San Antonio. I then received my Bachelors of Music in Music Education with my EC-12 certification from the University of Texas at San Antonio. While at UTSA I performed in several ensembles including the Wind Ensemble, Orchestra and Men’s Choir. I was also a member of the Spirit of San Antonio Marching Band during the inaugural year.
My wife, Bethany, and I have been married since June 2015 and just had our daughter, Grace, in September of 2017. We enjoy being new parents and watching our daughter grow. We also love our fur babies as well. We have a wonderful mutt of a dog named Bella and two cats, Helios and Artemis.
