Mrs. Burks

I am so excited to be at Blaney and in South Carolina this school year.  I am from Illinois, but I moved here in June with my family from Iowa.  I have lived there the past two years.  I taught first grade in Illinois for 20 years and taught 5th grade in Iowa for 1 year, before moving here.  I am very happy to be your child's first grade teacher.  First grade is the best!  I love the growth and excitement the kids have during their first grade year.   I am dedicated to helping your child develop a life-long love of reading.  I will take very good care of your little ones.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions at anytime.  I am always here to help.  Let's have a great year!
