Congrats to Dr. Laurie Burkett on being Teacher of the Month for May! This is her 23rd year of teaching, and 22 of those years have been here at Hogansville. She grew up in Pittsburgh and graduated from Clarion University of PA. After moving to GA, she received her masters from Troy State, and years later received her Phd from Capella University.
"I have been married to my husband, Michael, for 18 years. I have two beautiful daughters, Ashtyn and Taylar. I am the fur mama to 3 wonderful Yorkies and 6 crazy cats. I love teaching at HES and experiencing all that a school in a small town has to offer. It is so exciting to see and teach the children of the students I taught years ago. I am so fortunate to work with such a wonderful family at HES. While this year has been a challenge, it’s been encouraging to see how well both the faculty and the students adapted to the new norm."
