Miss Burrous

My name is Karissa Burrous. I am from Galeton, PA and just recently graduated from Slippery Rock University. I dual majored in Early Childhood Education and Special Education. This will be my first year teaching and I am super excited to start this new journey at Port Allegany School!

I grew up in a large family which helped spark my interest in working with children. I always enjoyed school and learning new things! My goal is for my students to find the fun in learning as well. I believe using many hands-on and engaging activities during lessons will help them become active participants in their own learning.

A fun fact about me is that I love to travel! While in college I had the awesome opportunity to travel abroad to Sweden, Italy, and Spain where I observed and taught in different international schools. I can't wait to incorporate what I've learned aboard into my own classroom!
