Ms. Crystal Burns
I am the newest addition to the Eagle's ELA Department, and I am excited to be apart of this family. I obtained my Bachelor's in Psychology at Augusta University (formerly known as Augusta State University). I'm currently pursuing my Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have experience working with youth of all ages and backgrounds. I have taught communication skills, coping skills, anger management, behavior modifications, and necessary life skills. I served as an Americorps Vista at The Literacy and Math Center facilitating interventions to increase literacy and math comprehension, as well as parent engagement.
Although my educational background is in social-emotional learning, I look forward to incorporating mini-lessons on emotions, communication, and other social-emotional skills into their language arts curriculum. English Language Arts revolves around us, whether it is in literature, music, or simply communicating. Learning the Art of the English Language is truly invigorating. Our class will create poems, essays, stories, and songs. My class will write fictional stories from their imagination and read nonfictional stories that shaped our history. They will learn the many facets ELA can serve and how to incorporate it into everyday life.
I look forward to cultivating a fun, engaging, and relatable learning environment to help our students succeed. I am willing to go the extra mile to help my students hit the pinnacles they plan to reach!
