Mr. Burgin's 6th Grade ELA/SS Class
My name is Mr. Burgin and I teach 6th-grade English Langauge Arts and Social Studies here at Koontz. This is my second year in education and I am looking forward to many more!
I was born in Statesville, NC and graduated with a Bachelor's of Arts in Elementary Education from Lenoir-Rhyne University in 2015 before moving to Asheville to teach. Outside of school, I enjoy reading, writing, playing my guitar and watching movies. I have traveled to Italy and Costa Rica, was a member of the LRU A Cappella Choir, and was a North Carolina Teaching Fellow.
What to Expect:
In my class, students work as a team every day. They will read, write, speak, listen, collaborate, create, and learn together.
I am very excited to introduce this year's class to the great world of Language Arts! Please feel free to email me with any questions.
Parents can also message me using Class Dojo Messenger.
