Grade Eight – Ms. Burke

Ms. Burke is very excited to begin her first year at SMS. In 2018, she graduated Cum
Laude from the University of St. Francis with her bachelor’s degree. During her college career,
she had the opportunity to study abroad in Ireland, where she took in its culture and history.
While in Europe, she toured Auschwitz Concentration Camp, the Van Gogh Museum, and Anne
Frank’s house. She returned to the states blessed and humbled.

After several years working at The Girl Scout’s of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana, she
decided to continue her education at her Alma Marta, USF. She is presently obtaining her M.Ed.
in Elementary Education.

Ms. Burke is a devout Catholic, and believes Jesus is calling her to service. She looks forward
to teaching the next generation to embrace their faith, and develop a passion for reading and
writing.
