Hello! My name is Mrs. Burton. I am so excited about teaching Kindergarten for the 2020-21 school year at Bulverde Creek Elementary School. I have been working in education for six years and home schooled my children for three. I grew up as a Military Brat and spent ten years of my childhood living in France and Germany. I am married and we have two handsome boys. I enjoy spending time with my family, trying out new recipes, game nights, reading a good book, painting, or playing the piano.
My purpose and passion for teaching is to inspire a love for life-long learning, and to empower students to reach their highest academic potential. I believe all children can learn, and making mistakes is simply an opportunity to grow. My goal is to create a warm and caring classroom community of learners who support and appreciate each other’s differences.
I look forward to meeting your precious child and building positive parent-teacher relationships. It's going to be a great school year!
