Say hello to
-1st grade giant
Ms Burgess has been at Woodhome since 2016. During her time here she has co-taught 4th grade and 2020-2021 will be her fourth year teaching 1st grade. She taught 9th grade in Miami, Florida for two years for a non-profit called City Year. She moved to Baltimore to obtain her Master's in Elementary Education and Special Education. Her undergrad degree is in Secondary English Education with a minor in Educational Technologies from the University of Delaware.
Ms Burgess chooses Woodhome because of the staff that works here. Not only do they go above and beyond for their students, but they will do the same for each other. You can always find her playing in the band at their music concerts. That way she gets to play one of the three instruments she knows how to play!
Outside of school you can catch her at her second job at the Maryland Science Center. At home Ms Burgess loves to just lay around the house and binge a show or learn a new craft.
