Mrs. Madrea Burns
I am Madrea Burns. I am excited to be serving as counselor for Bessie Coleman. I will be working with 6th grade students. last names beginning with A-L and all of 7th grade this year.
I have worked in education for 15 years and this will be my first year at Bessie Coleman. I am proud to say that I am a veteran of the US Army and before my move education I maintained a career in telecommunications.
I hold strongly to the belief that every student should be well balanced. Scholars need to be developed in every area- social, emotional and academics. Educating the whole child- is the beginning of wisdom and success.
I am very excited to be here and look forward to an exciting year.
