Mrs. Christi Burks
Hello and welcome to Second Grade! I am Christi Burks, and I am thrilled that I will be a part of the Second Grade team this year at East Elementary. I cannot wait to meet my class! Here are a few things about me.
I graduated from Howard Payne University in 1996 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education and Mathematics. I also have a certification in English as a Second Language. This will be my 21st year as a teacher, and I have had experience teaching 1st and 2nd grade self-contained, grades 3-8 Mathematics and Reading, and Algebra 1.
I have been married for 20 years to my sweet husband, Todd Burks. He is a service technician at Atmos Energy. We have a beautiful daughter, Abigail, that is a Sophomore at Brownwood High School. She is passionate about music and is involved in the Brownwood Lion Marching Band, Powerlifting and Golf. Our family also includes the sweetest little fur-baby, Scout, named after my favorite book character in To Kill a Mockingbird.
I have a passion for teaching, and I believe that teaching is the best profession in the world. I am looking forward to meeting each of you and working with you to make this the best possible year for your child.
