Ms. Burke

One of the most veteran teachers here at SMHS. Ms. Burke has been teaching her favorite subject, English, since 1991. She was drawn to a career teaching English by both her love for literature and the language as a whole. Her favorite books are the Sound and the Fury, Grapes of Wrath, and Hamlet. Probably not the first choices of her students when studying them. According to Angela Zang, a student in Ms. Burke’s Junior English class, Ms. Burke’s teaching is “alot of work but manageable.” Her teaching philosophy is that anyone can learn. She likes to teach students by guiding them to expose ideas. Suprisingly, her favorite project each year is one seemingly unrelated to English: her modernist project. In the project she has students research different aspects of the early 20th century and present them to get a better understanding of the literature of the time period. In closing she gave the following advice to students: “Be open minded about people” a lesson to live by for her graduating senior classes. On a parting note she said Mr. Brazzle was her favorite student when he was a student here at SMHS.
