Burress Science/History

Welcome to 5th grade Science and History!

“Always walk through life as if you have something new to learn and you will.”

— Vernon Howard

Hi! My name is Mrs. Stephanie Burress and I am so excited to be your science and history teacher this year.

This is my fourth year teaching, but my first year at PCA. I am happy to be here and I look forward to working with each of you and getting to know you and your families. We will work hard and have a lot of fun learning this year. My favorite subject in school was always science, and I know we will enjoy learning history together too.

These are a few of my favorite things... Green!! I love everything green. COFFEE- its my "early morning" must have! Mountains and Lakes! Candy!

I grew up in Morganton, NC and I love this part of the state. The mountains are my absolute favorite place to be. I went to Western Carolina University and graduated with a B.S. Ed, minors and concentrations in Earth and Environmental Science. I met my husband there and he joined the Army soon after. We've lived in Alabama and in Fayetteville, NC. We are happy to have had the opportunity to travel and meet so many different people.

We have three boys; Conner is 6 and will be in first grade at PCA, Caleb is 4 and Joseph is 2. We also have a boxer named Josie who is almost 8.

I will update grades in Powershcool weekly. When grades are updated I will email to let you know. Ms. Dover and I will also send home graded assignments every other Tuesday in your child's red folder, be on the lookout for those.
