Mrs. Burke - Language Arts

My name is Kristi Burke and I am new to 6th grade this year! I grew up in Northern California and stayed there until 2001 when I moved to Idaho with my husband, Mike and twin boys, Tyler and Ryan. I enjoy taking photos, watching Dallas Cowboy football and spending time with friends and family. I have taught in the West Ada District for almost 10 years and most of that time has been spent teaching 5th graders and preparing them for Middle School. I am SO excited to be a part of this next step in their education. I have a B.A. in Liberal Arts with a minor in Early Childhood Education and a M.A Degree in Elementary Education K-8. I love the learning process and sharing “ah ha” moments with your kids. I enjoy watching their growth all year and making sure they always feel welcome, safe and successful. I am looking forward to a great year!

Welcome to 6th grade Science!  I'm excited to have you in my class this year.  This is my 10th year teaching in the West Ada School District. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Education from Northwest Nazarene University.  I also received my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from NNU.  I chose to become a teacher because I can't imagine any profession that could be more satisfying on a daily basis.  I love knowing the impact I make on my students academically and in the real world.  In the classroom I strive to ensure a positive learning environment by making learning interesting and fun. I love to laugh with students and together we work on building a sense of community in the classroom. Teaching students responsibility is a major goal of mine. Learning to complete assignments on time and returning them to school is a skill that students must master to be successful in life. 

At the end of the day I enjoy spending time with my husband of 20 years and our 12 year old daughter.  On most weekends you will find me cheering on my daughter on the basketball court or soccer field.  I am looking forward to a terrific year!

Welcome!

I’m Mrs. Son, and I am so excited to have you in my class this year! I have been a 6th grade teacher in the West Ada School District since 1999. I love working with sixth-graders and helping them learn how to be responsible, respectful and productive young people. 

After I spend my days with my awesome sixth-graders I go home to my husband, our daughter, and our dogs.  I love movies, reading, biking, and baking! I love teaching sixth grade, and I am thrilled to get to know you this year!

Welcome to 6th Grade!

An average week consists of Word Work, reading, focused writing assignments, occasional outbursts of song and dance, as well as practice of presentation and listening skills.  Students will have many opportunities to research and practice the skills that make good readers and writers.
