Degrees and Certifications:
Hello and welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Paine Elementary School! My name is Mrs. Maggie Burns and I am very excited to announce that I will be your 5th grade teacher. I can’t wait to finally get to meet you. I graduated with my undergraduate degree in elementary education from Auburn University (War Eagle) in 2009 and received 2 Master’s Degree shortly after from UAB and Jacksonville State University. I have been married to my husband for 4 years and we have a wonderful son, Noah who is almost 2.
This will be my 9th year as a teacher. I began my teaching career with the Jefferson County School System, where I taught 3rd, 4th and 6th grade math. However, this will be my first year as a 5th grade math teacher and my first year at Paine Elementary School.
Teaching math is truly my passion. I love developing lessons that are student centered and think about you and your individual needs with each lesson that I teach. I strive to create an environment where mistakes are used for opportunities to learn. My goal for you as my student is to learn how to persevere through difficult problems and take on challenges with math tools that will last you through middle school and beyond.
I look forward to a great year!
