Welcome to Mrs. Burkett's Kindergarten and First Classroom! Learning in Kindergarten and First Grade is filled with many new and exciting activities. Children learn through hands-on activities that are developmentally appropriate, along with learning how to work independently. My goal is to ensure that all children have fun and feel successful while learning new academic skills.
I have taught for 23 years. The majority of my teaching experience has been in kindergarten. I also have experience in an Exceptional Children's classroom, Pre-K classroom and First grade. I have been at Catawba since our school opened in 2007. Catawba is a wonderful school with caring people who share the same goal - the education of our students!
I am excited to begin this journey of school with you and your child! I look forward to a wonderful year!
