Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Burns

I am a 3rd grade teacher and this is my 19th year teaching at Mackay!  During my career at Mackay, I have taught 1st and 4th grade, as well as, Basic Skills.  I was a track coach for the Tenafly High School indoor and outdoor seasons for 10 years and continue to pass on my love for running through my enrichment club, Fast Feet.

I am not just a teacher, but mother of two little girls.  I spend most of my time outside of school playing princesses, building with magnetic tiles, drawing, painting and running around on the playground with my girls.  Our family loves to travel and learn about new places.  Some of the fun places we have visited are Hilton Head, South Carolina and the Jersey Shore. All these fascinating trips have helped me create the memories that I write about and share during Writer's Workshop.

I love to learn!  I am a huge Pintrest fan and I love to watch tutorials online to find out new and exciting teaching techniques and cratfs that I can bring into the classroom to make our learning fun and exciting!
