As a teacher, I always ask my students their dreams, their goals, and what they want to be when they grow up. Since I was in 2nd grade I have always known I wanted to be an elementary teacher. I am living my dream each day I walk into the classroom!!
My name is Courtney Burkhart. I was born and raised in Dallas, and went to elementary school in Plano. My family moved to Wisconsin where I graduated from high school. Needless to say, I'm both a Packer and Cowboys fan! I moved back to Texas (I needed to see the sun) and graduated from Baylor University with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education.
I taught 1st grade and 3rd grade for 12 years in Plano ISD. The last 3 years I've taught 2nd grade in Highland Park ISD. I'm so excited to be back in 3rd grade in Lovejoy ISD.
When I am out of the classroom, I love spending time with my family and friends. My husband and I welcomed a new little girl a year ago and we love being with her!! I love being active, being outside, and watching all sports!! I am passionate about teaching and learning. I am so thrilled and grateful to be part of Lovejoy Elementary!
