Hello! My name is Erika Burdine. I am in my fourth year as ESL Teacher for Grades 3-5. This is my thirteenth year of teaching, all of which have been here at West Elementary! I am also an alumnus of West, attending school here from Kindergarten to 2nd grade. I am a graduate of Warren County High School and Tennessee Tech University, receiving my Master's Degree in Curriculum & Instruction with a concentration in Reading, and a Specialist in Education Degree in Curriculum & Instruction with a concentration in Early Childhood Education. I am also certified in Elementary Education and English as a Second Language.
I have been married for over five years to my husband David. I have a sixteen-month-old daughter named Isabella! In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, and watching basketball and tennis.
