Ms. Samantha Burns
Hello and Welcome!
I earned both my Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary English Education and Master’s Degree in Divergent Learning from Columbia College in Columbia, SC. I’ve worked in alternative education, traditional schools, and Gifted and Talented courses. I consider myself a lifelong learner and am always looking to attend Professional Development or take Graduate Level classes to hone my skills as an educator. I am currently enrolled in Columbia College's Trauma-Informed Education Master's program. This year, I will be teaching English II, though I have taught a variety of Core English levels and English-based electives in my career.
In my personal life I enjoy reading, watching television shows, and spending time with my family who are mostly all located right here in Kershaw County. I have five rescue pets, three cats and two dog, whom I love very much.
Prior to Camden High School, I taught for six years in Columbia, but as a Kershaw County native I am very excited to be part of the Bulldog family. I am eager to work with my students to cultivate a safe and accepting learning environment where we will strive to strengthen our reading, writing, and communication skills.
