Mrs. Amanda Burke
Hello! My name is Amanda Burke, and I teach 5th grade ELA and Social Studies at High Shoals Elementary School. Prior to teaching in Oconee County, I taught in Gwinnett County for seven years. Over the years, I have taught kindergarten, second, fourth, and fifth grades. I hope to pass my passion for literacy on to my students. I’ve been married almost 30 years, and have four wonderful children. My greatest joy as a teacher is when I can help a reluctant reader transform into a “Reading Machine” (as I playfully love to call them)! I love teaching! I’m so very thankful I get to work with such an amazing group of children and their families here in Oconee County.
