Hello!

I am so glad to be the Instructional Technology Educator assigned to Burnside Elementary for this new school year! I look forward to getting re-acquainted with you all again and supporting your instructional technology needs and desires. I have several exciting technology updates to share with you at the faculty meeting on Monday, September 22, 2014.

A Great Welcome !

I enjoyed being part of Burnside's Open House on Tuesday, September 16th. It was really wonderful to see such a large crowd of parents, students, and staff members all interacting and getting to know one another! What a wonderful way to start the new school year!
