Mrs. Burkhart

Hello! My name is Mrs. Burkhart, and I am the first-grade teacher at ICT. I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of the JCS team! This is my third year as an elementary school teacher. I received my B.S. in Psychology at Mount St. Mary’s University in Maryland, and my teaching credential through California State University, Los Angeles. In my classroom, my students learn through all types of hands-on activities. The room is filled with learning, growth, and laughter! When I am not in the classroom, my husband and I like to take day trips or spend out time outdoors. We enjoy hiking, visiting museums, and playing volleyball at the beach. My hobbies include photography and traveling. I’m looking forward to having a fantastic year at JCS!
