Mrs. Shelby Turri - Co-Principal

I was born and raised in Oroville, which helps me associate closely with our students and the community, though I now reside in Chico. I attended schools in the Palermo District and Las Plumas High School. I went to Butte College for two years where I earned my AA in Liberal Studies, and went on to CSU, Chico where I graduated with my BA in Liberal Studies in 2013 with Summa Cum Laude Honors. I spent two semesters completing the CSU, Chico credential program and student teaching in a second and a fifth grade classroom and I completed my credential as a certified teacher in May 2014. I then was hired at STREAM, where I taught second grade for five years. Three years ago, I became the Independent Study teacher and taught 4th-8th graders for two years. It was quite the adventure, and I loved it. This past school year, I was STREAM's Tech. Time STEM teacher and worked with K-4th graders. Last school year, I also worked closely with Mr. Phillips and Mr. Thomas in preparation for moving into my role as Co-Principal this school year. I am very much looking forward to this new role.


I come from a teaching family: my mother was a teacher for 36 years and my sister is STREAM's new Tech. Time teacher. I had wanted to be a teacher ever since I could remember and feel I can hopefully make a bigger impact as Co-Principal. Now that I have over a decade of working in education under my belt, I am looking forward to perfecting my craft and challenging myself in new ways in the coming years.


The outdoors is a great love of mine. I especially like swimming and walking. I also enjoy yoga, reading, cooking, fixing up our house, and traveling. I spend my free time with my family, friends, and pets. I live with my wonderful husband, Daniel, who has been by my side since my first year teaching. We have two dogs Kobe and Dash. We are currently busy renovating our home in Chico and (mostly) patiently awaiting the arrival of our first baby, a little boy named Brink. We cannot wait to become parents.


I am looking forward to another great year at STREAM. I cannot wait to see students, teachers, staff, and families utilize the new gym and classrooms. I am excited to see where STREAM goes next. Here's to another fantastic year!
