Ken Burton - Social Studies
Hi! My name is Ken Burton and I teach Seventh Grade Texas History.  I will also serve as Department Head for Texas History this year.  I have taught at the middle school level for 25 years, and this will be my 17th year at CPMS!  In my spare time I enjoy running, mountain biking and generally being outside.  I am married Mrs. Burton who teaches American History here at CPMS.  Between us we have 5 children and one grandchild.  Our youngest three are still in high school and keep us very busy.   I am looking forward to another great school year!   My email address is kenneth.burton@leanderisd.org. My extension is 43150.
