Hello! My name is Kimberlee Burris and I am excited to be a 2nd grade teacher at Barbara Morgan STEM Academy. I have been working at BMSA for four years - two as an as Instructional Coach and two as a 2nd grade teacher. This will be year 20-something for me as a teacher. I have spent the bulk of my career in West Ada School District, but I have taught in 5 other states. I have taught every grade K-7 over the years, but second grade has a special place in my heart. I am proud graduate of the University of Colorado, where I completed both my teaching certification and earned a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I am dedicated to positively impacting student achievement by partnering with families, as well as with my fabulous colleagues. Outside of school, my husband and I are busy with our kids, though our numbers at home are dwindling rapidly. Of our three kids (ages 20, 18 and 15) only our youngest still lives at home We love to camp and are big sport's fans. We love cheering for BSU and WSU (where are son is currently in college)! I am also an avid walker, hiker and cycler and love all of the wonderful places there are to explore in Idaho.
