In 1995, I graduated from Mineral Wells High School and went straight to college in the fall. After changing my major from nursing to education, I graduated from Tarleton State University in 2001. I completed my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership in December 2019. This will be my 19th year in education.
I came to Perrin Elementary in 2009 and only left for a short time before realizing that Perrin was where I wanted and needed to be! Previously, I havee taught 4th grade ELA/Social Studies, 4th grade self-contained, and 1st grade. This is my 3rd year as an ELAR teacher in Junior High! It will begin my first year working with the seniors.
In 2001, I began my teaching career in Mineral Wells at Houston Elementary teaching 2nd grade self-contained. After 4 years at Houston Elementary, I opened my own preschool in Mineral Wells. After having the preschool for 4 years, I began working for Mr. Wolf at Perrin Elementary!
Mr. Burke and I have been married for almost 22 years. We live in Mineral Wells with our children Kylie, Keaton, and Kolby, and our two precious twin grandbabies, Harper and Brynlee. Kolby is the only one of my children left at Perrin High School, and he will be a senior this year. Our daughter Kylie owns her own boutique in Mineral Wells, Grace Upon Grace, while Keaton owns his own tattoo shop, Permanent Art. Harper and Brynlee will begin preschool this year which is so exciting. We have 1 pet, Boomer. Boomer is a German Shepherd and is Keaton’s pup.
