Ms. Burke

I am committed to doing the best job I can everyday and thoroughly enjoy what I do: teaching language arts and interacting with colleagues and students.  I have taught English (to all grade levels 7-12) as well as a wide variety of electives including journalism, film, reading, writing, grammar, woman's literature, the short story, Writing Prep, SAT Prep, Lit Prep.  Throughout the years I have served as newspaper advisor, class advisor, archery coach, MAEA treasurer, and committee member. My educational background includes a B.A. in Liberal Arts English from Penn State University (main campus) and an M. Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction also from the Pennsylvania State University (main campus).  I hold both secondary comprehensive English certification as well as K-12 Reading Specialist certification.  On a personal level, I enjoy life-laughing and having fun with family and friends, watching a great film or Broadway show, reading an engaging book, doing a challenging crossword puzzle, cooking, gardening, and traveling.
