Ms. Susan Burdick

 
Welcome to Ms. Burdick's Class!
 

My name is Ms. Susan Burdick and I am excited to be your child's 3rd Grade Teacher! I am originally from Athens, Georgia and our No Excuses University is the University of Georgia, home of the Bulldogs!  I have been in education the past 28 years.  I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Brigham Young University in 1989 and received my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University in 2001.  I  spent 16 years working as a teacher; as well as 5 years in the position of Principal while living and working on the Navajo Reservation. When I relocated to Flagstaff I was offered the opportunity to use my skills as The School Director at a local public charter school. Throughout my career I have enjoyed working as a teacher and administrator, but have to admit my first love and passion is teaching!  In my free time I enjoy reading, solving crossword puzzles, listening to music, hiking with my dog, and spending time with friends and family.  I also love plants and flowers, a good cup of hot cocoa, and the Autumn season!  I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to continue my teaching career with the students at Thomas Elementary School.  I look forward to my 6th year at Thomas and the opportunity to help my students learn, grow, and achieve in third grade!
