Pioneer School Open House September 19th

Welcome to Pioneer School. My name is Mrs. Jami Burns and this is my 19th year teaching at Pioneer School. Over my years at Pioneer, I have taught kindergarten, 1st, 3rd and 4th as well as P.E., Math, and Gifted and Talented. I am very excited to be teaching a variety of grades as well as subjects. I enjoy being a part of the students’ learning experiences and strive to provide each child with an enthusiastic desire to learn.

I live in Huntley with my husband of almost of 20 years and a son, Mitchell who is a sophmore and a daughter, Megan who is an 8th grader at Huntley Project. I enjoy being with my family, being outdoors, and reading.
