I taught second and fifth grades at John Lawrence Elementary School from 1996-2001.  Upon returning to the profession after having my first child, I taught reading and math remediation on a part time basis at Hopewell Elementary School from 2002-2009.   Since returning to the classroom fulltime in the fall of 2009, I have taught fourth and fifth grades.  I am thankful and happy to be a part of such a wonderful school as Hopewell and am proud to be a honeybee!!!


I have been married to Todd Burgess since 1997.  Together we have two children:  a daughter, Kelsey, who is a senior at Wheatmore High School and a son, Collin, who is an eighth grade student at Archdale-Trinity Middle School.  We live in Sophia with our dog, Biff.  I thoroughly enjoy spending time with my family.  As a family, we enjoy traveling, soccer, basketball, and activities at our church.
