Mark of Excellence
My name is Mrs. Burton and this is my sixth year at Highland Elementary. I am so excited to teach English Language Learners this year. I have taught at various grade levels in elementary and middle schools in Alabama, Texas, Illinois, and Michigan. I have a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from Grand Valley State University and a Masters Degree in English as a Second Language from the University of Alabama. I am married to my high school sweetheart and have 4 children ages 15, 18, 19, and 21. I have an Australian Retriever named "Dutch". In my spare time I enjoy boating, downhill skiing, playing my violin, and spending time with my family. My favorite place to visit is my home state of Michigan, to relax beside its many beautiful lakes.
