Meet the Assistant Principals

Assistant Principal – Liz Binion


My name is Liz Binion,  19th in education with CFBISD. I am a Carrollton Native and completed my primary and secondary education all with the CFBISD school District. I attended McCoy Elementary, Blalack Middle School and Newman Smith High School. Choosing to stay local and close to my roots, I completed my undergraduate studies at The University of North Texas and completed my Graduate studies, while teaching at RL Turner High School, obtaining my Masters of Education at Dallas Baptist University. I have three wonderful sons, Tyler, Cole and Cade, of which the 2 oldest children graduated from RL Turner High School. This year my newest addition arrived in the form of a Grandson named Nicolas, at which time I was honored to be given the additional title of “Lovie” to go along with Mom. 

It has been and continues to be my honor to serve RL Turner High School and it community. Of my 19 years, 15 of those years I have had the privilege to share with the students of staff at RL Turner. Although the students and staff may change each year, one thing is for certain the Great Lion Pride never does!  It I am looking forward to meeting you soon and working together!
