Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Michelle Burns and I am so excited to be teaching 2nd Grade at FES! This is my fourth year at FES, and my 11th year teaching. I am loving every minute! I am originally from Fayette. I walked these same hallways that your child walks daily! I graduated from Fayette County High School in 2008. I attended Bevill State from 2008-2010, where I served as an Ambassador and SGA President. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from Mississippi University for Women (MUW) in December of 2012. I hold a Master's Degree in Gifted Education from the University of Alabama (ROLL TIDE!), which I earned in August of 2015. I have taught Gifted Education for Tuscaloosa County schools and Hale County schools.
Here is a little about me:
-I knew I wanted to be a teacher since Kindergarten. I would go home in the afternoons and play school.
-I love to read, paint, cook and pretty much any kind of DIY project.
-My favorite place is anywhere near water.
-I love anything "artsy."
-History was my favorite subject in school (and still is!).
-I love anything chocolate (except Fudge)!
I am so excited to be at "home" and to be your child's teacher! It's going to be a great year!
