Dear English Class Students:

This is an introduction to the class teacher. Each of you need to create a similar introductory page about you, with pictures or even a video clip. Then email it to me at joburke@wsd.net, and I’ll add it to the blog.

I have been teaching English since 1998. I first started teaching in northern Arizona on the Navajo Nation, Chinle High School, until 2000. I also went to Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff, and received my MA in English. In 2000 I moved to California, Monterey, and taught English at Gonzales High School for a year.

In 2001 I went into the US Army full-time for four years, spending one year in Huntsville, Alabama, two years in Wuerzburg, Germany, and one year in Tikrit, Iraq. I had previously been Utah Army National Guard as a combat engineer for eight years.

After Iraq I went back to teaching English. This time in Utah for the Tooele School District for two years before coming to Two Rivers High School in 2007.

I have two kids: Sophia, 13, and Kai, 8. My wife also works for Weber School District as the hearing impaired specialist.

Mr. Burke
