My name is Kelly Burke and I am so excited to be joining the Kindergarten team at Cheatham Elementary! I cannot wait to learn more about you and your child, but until then, I’ll give you a little background about myself.
I grew up in Plano, TX and am a recent graduate from the University of North Texas where I received my bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. At North Texas, I was also part of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority. I have been a nanny for the past five years and have always loved being around kids. In my free time I enjoy being outdoors, spending time with friends and family and catching up on all of the latest Netflix shows. I love any kind of snacks and iced coffee and will likely always have a cup in my hand. I have a sweet dog named Millie, a loving mom and dad, and two older sisters that I am very close with. I am a little kid at heart with a goofy personality who will strive to make learning as fun as possible.
As an educator, it is my goal to make students aware of how much they are loved, cared for, and how smart they truly are! I want to instill a love for learning in my students that they will carry with them for many years to come. It’s very important to me to develop individual relationships with my students, and rewarding to know that I just might be able to impact them for the rest of his or her life. I’ve wanted to become a teacher ever since the 3rd grade, because of the impact that teacher made on me, and I hope to do the same for your child.
I can’t wait to see how much we all grow this year! Together, I know, we will be nothing but successful! Looking forward to meeting you!
