Falana Burks, Ph.D.
About the Teacher
It has been a pleasure to serve students in Madison County. For the past 21 years I have served as an elementary classroom teacher, a curriculum specialist, an assistant principal, and a head principal. I have a Bachelors degree from Rust College (Holly Springs, Mississippi) and a Masters and Doctorate of Philosophy degree from Jackson State University. I have had the opportunity to receive specialized training in educational administration from Millsaps College and Harvard University. I have worked with parents and students in the Ridgeland, Velma Jackson, and Gluckstadt zone. I am always pleased to let others know that I was born and raised in Madison County and received all of my educational foundation through the Madison County School District. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband and our children Khalil and Kennedy.
