Meet the Teacher

Hi! My name is Mrs. Burns and I am SO excited to be your child’s 1st grade teacher!

 I am originally from Oregon but have been living in Carlsbad for 15 years now, and still can’t believe this beautiful city is my home. I am married to my best friend (who I have known since 5th grade), have an amazing 9 year old step daughter, and recently had a precious baby girl, who will be 6 months old next week.

I graduated, in 2009, from Cal State San Marcos with a Bachelors degree in Liberal Studies and a concentration in Human Development. In 2010 I continued on with my Post-Baccalaureate studies at Cal State San Marcos where I received a Multiple Subject Credential with an Authorization to English Learners and a Certificate in Elementary Level Education. I feel that, with my background in Human Development, I have a true understanding of the many factors affecting the education of children. Meeting each of my student's unique needs is a priority to me and I can assure you that I will take the time to develop a personal understanding of each one of them.

This is my fifth year at Poinsettia and my fourth year teaching 1st grade. I love first grade and all of the exploring, learning, and fun we get to have! First grade is an exciting year filled with new independence and increasing abilities. You will be amazed, as I always am, at how much your child will learn in the next 9 months. They will grow physically, socially, academically, and emotionally. They will become more responsible and independent as they face new challenges. I will make every effort to help your child adjust to our new routine as it is important to me that your child feels happy and secure in our classroom.

I am a true believer that parent/teacher communication and support is the best way to ensure a great education for your child so please feel free to contact me if you ever have any questions or concerns.  I look forward to an amazing school year!
