Hi! My name is Mrs. Burkemper and this is my sixth year teaching at Martin City! I taught 1st grade for five years and this is my first year teaching 2nd grade! I am so excited for all the adventures, learning and fun we will get to have throughout the year.
I have a Master's Degree in Teaching from Lindenwood University, and a Bachelor of Arts in English/Creative Writing from the University of Kansas (Rock Chalk!). My favorite subject is reading, I love teaching students how to discover the wonderful world that books immerse us in and how reading provides us with the tools to propel us through any academic endeavor. There is truly nothing better than a great book!
I live in Mission, KS with my husband, Eric, our awesome dog, Eva, and two silly cats, Finley and Stella.
I can't wait to spend the next year learning and growing with you and your child! Happy reading!
A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS
Book: Harry Potter
Animal: mountain goat
Hobby: running, hiking, cooking, reading
