Degrees and Certifications:
Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,
I would like to welcome you to my class for the 2017-2018 school year! This is going to be a fantastic year for all of us. Once I have had a student in my class, they are definitely a friend for life. I like to think that I offer the students an exciting attitude and brand of learning that makes them enjoy school and want to come back every day. One word sums up all that I ask of children, EFFORT. I do not give much homework every night. However, in exchange for that I do ask that while your child is here at school, they give me 110% effort. If your child gives me effort everyday, then there is no reason for them not to learn what’s required.
I was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and graduated from Coastal Carolina with both a Bachelors and Masters degree in Elementary Education. If they don’t already know, your children will find out that I am a huge sports fan. I follow Philadelphia Eagles football, Philadelphia Phillies baseball, Philadelphia 76ers basketball, and University of Notre Dame football very intently. At times throughout the year, I try to incorporate them into our learning!
I take my job very seriously and I understand that these children are extremely important to you. It is my goal to have them cherish every moment they have with me and former students of mine can attest to the fact that they will enjoy my class and we get the job done while having fun. I am a firm believer in personal contact and availability, so I will tell you that if there are any problems, concerns, questions, or celebrations you would like to share with me, feel free to e-mail me at PBurnett@horrycountyschools.net
I look forward to an outstanding year and this is going to be a great journey!
