About the Teacher
Degrees and Certifications:
I am a proud 2005 alumnus of Louisiana State University. My degree is in Liberal Arts and Art History. I obtained my teaching certificate through the alternative certification program, LRCE, in Baton Rouge, LA in the summer of 2010.
Welcome to Odenville Intermediate School and to 3rd grade! My name is Casey Burnham and I will be your child's teacher this year. I understand that moving to a new school and new grade may generate lots of questions and concerns. Be encouraged that your child will be well taken care of with excellent administration, faculty, staff, and counselor at OIS. I pray this school year your child grows in wisdom, knowledge, and grace as we experience challenges, struggles, and successes together.
Originally from south Louisiana, I will complete my 8th year of teaching in December 2018. Of my eight years six have been spent in third grade and two have been spent in fourth grade. Five and a half years of my teaching experience was in LaPlace, LA at a beautiful school named, Emily C. Watkins Elementary. This is my third year at Odenville Intermediate School and I look forward to serving the community through education here. Third grade tends to bring new challenges in academics as students learn to apply skills they have mastered in the past in different ways. I am committed to helping your child address these challenges in an encouraging way.
