Mrs. Kayla Burns

Hello Warriors! My name is Kayla Burns.  I am the fourth grade Reading teacher.  This is my second year to teach at Ingram Elementary School.  I have taught every grade from first to eighth grade excluding second. Fourth grade is an exciting grade to teach because the kids are developing their own unique personalities. This is my thirty-first year to teach, so I have been blessed to be in education for a while. I am a West Texas girl from Abilene, Texas. I graduated college from McMurry University in 1989 with a BS in Education and a specialization in Reading. 

My husband and I moved to the Hill Country in 2001 with our two children who are now both attending college. I have taught at Tally Elementary and Harper Jr. High and now proud to be an Ingram Brave. I am so excited to have the opportunity to teach your child and help them to reach their potential. My goal is to do my best to ignite a spark in your child to enjoy books and a love of reading.  "Reading should not be presented to children as a chore, or a duty.  It should be offered as a gift." - Katy DiCamillo
