Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Rachel Burke
Biography: Hello! My name is Rachel Burke and I teach seventh grade Literacy. I grew up in Boston, Massachusetts and attended college in Tigerville, South Carolina, where I received a BA in English with a concentration in Secondary Education from North Greenville University. This is my ninth year in education and my fourth year at CCMS. I absolutely love living in the south and have no plans to return to the frosty lands of my birth anytime soon! In my free time, you can find me hiking, volunteering at church, or reading a book while cuddling with my cat, Yurii.
My Why: I teach because it is a privilege to effect change in young people's lives. I seek to guide students to read critically so they can understand others' perspectives and to write clearly so they can share their voices with the world. In my classroom, we strive to understand what it means to be human and encourage one another to become better individuals every day.
