I joined Burns Elementary in the fall of 2014 after teaching for 8 years in Topeka, KS. I have taught in 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th grades but first grade is my favorite -- so many light bulb moments! I became a teacher after working around the country for fifteen years in the corporate world and am so grateful I found my career in education. I have a Bachelor's in English Literature as well as my Bachelor's in Elementary Education. I also have a Master's degree in Elementary Education. My motto is: Learning should be fun!
