My name is Carrie Burnette and I will be your child’s Kinder Prep teacher at the Cooley Early Childhood Development Center. I have taught for eleven years, this is my third year at Cooley. I am so proud to be a part of this amazing program and excited to share a great year with your child!
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Pace University and a Master's Degree in Education, with an emphasis in Reading, from Arizona State University; go Sun Devils! I hold endorsements in Early Childhood Education, Reading, and English as a Second Language. I love to learn and am excited to share that enthusiasm with the students in my classroom.
I am originally from New York, but have lived in Arizona for 20 years. I am married and have three children ages 13, 11 and 8. In addition, I have two nutty dogs. My family and I enjoy watching movies, playing games, going on bike rides, and spending time with friends and family.
Teaching is my passion. I love watching children grow and make connections. I feel that Kinder Prep is an important year for students. It is when they will begin to form their first opinions about school and themselves as learners. As a team, we will make this school year special for your child!
