Mrs. Burkett

Hello!  My name is Mrs. Cheryl Burkett and I am currently a Reading Recovery trained Reading Interventionist at Harbison West Elementary.   I  taught First Grade here for twenty GLORIOUS years! I have been a teacher at Harbison West since 1985.   (Can you tell how much I LOVE this school?)

I have two children, who reside in Georgia and Louisiana and two precious grandchildren, who reside in Georgia.  My daughter decided to follow in the footsteps of her maternal grandmother and mother to become a teacher.  You will never guess what grade she teaches.  (Hint:  See above).  My son is a manager of a well-known breakfast restaurant chain.

Besides introducing my students to the joy and importance of reading, I also enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and cooking.  

I am so excited to begin this educational journey with you!  Please learn more about what your child and I will be learning together in our Literacy Club.
