8th Grade Math / Algebra I
I graduated from Brownfield High School in Brownfield, TX.
I graduated from Angelo State University in San Angelo, TX.
I have a Bachelor of Science Degree with a major in Mathematics and a minor in Kinesiology.
I have a lifetime teaching certificate in secondary mathematics – grades 6-12, and secondary physical education – grades 6-12.
I am also certified in GT.
I serve as a SkillsUSA advisor and I am a UIL coach for 8th grade.
I have updated my GT certification each summer.
I taught 8th grade math and Algebra I at WJHS starting last year. I will be teaching the same courses again this year. Prior to that, I taught 2 years at MHS. While at the high school, I taught Finance Math for seniors, Algebra II, Math Staar, and served as a dual credit facilitator. I have been at this school district for 3 years.
Prior to working in Monahans, I taught for many years at Denver City High School, Burnet Middle School, and Brownfield High School. I am starting my 19th year this year. I was blessed with the opportunity to stay home with my children until they all started school! I then returned to teaching.
I am blessed to be married to Scott Burkett, CTE director for the school district. We have 3 children – Bailee, Zach, and Mackenzie. All of our children are working for the school district this year
We have 10 chickens, 1 rooster, and 2 goats!
I love to hike, read, watch movies, bike, and spend time with my family!
