Mrs. Burnett's Class


Welcome to fifth grade at Northeast! My name is Michele Burnett and I’m so excited to be your teacher this year. I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon and moved with my family to Parker in 2011. I have a BA in elementary education from Linfield College with a dual minor in mathematics and early childhood education. In Oregon I taught elementary school for nine years before taking time off to be a stay-at-home mom and school volunteer. In 2014, I returned to the classroom, teaching fifth grade at Northeast. I'm thrilled to be starting my fifth year at this wonderful school!

My husband, John, and I live in the Pinery area with our two great sons. Ryan is a sophomore at Legend High School and Grant is starting his freshman year at Legend. When I am not at school, I spend a lot of time watching Legend basketball games. I also love reading, traveling, and spending time with family, friends, and my two kitties, Lucy and Lily.

Fifth grade is such an exciting time as we finish out our elementary school years and prepare for middle school. Our year will be filled with lots of learning and lots of fun! I’m looking forward to a wonderful year with your family. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me: michele.burnett@dcsdk12.org
