Ms. Sheri Burke
My name is Sheri Burke and I am currently teaching 7th and 8th grade ELA at Middleton Middle School and have been teaching over 20 years. I received my undergraduate degree from Boise State University, and earned my Masters in Educational Leadership from Northwest Nazarene University.
Most of my teaching career has been spent in the Middleton School District. After teaching for one year in Emmett, I began my tenure in Middleton. My first years were spent teaching 1st grade at Mill Creek Elementary. Once Purple Sage Elementary was built, I transferred to teaching 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. In 2013, I made the move to middle school, teaching reading and language arts in grades 6 and 7. Over the years, I have taught summer school, I have been a summer school principal, and I have been a Vice Principal in the West Ada School District.
My children attended Middleton schools and both have moved on to become wonderful humans! My son is a lawyer in Boise and my daughter is a mom raising three of my (almost) five grandchildren. My newest granddaughter is due in December.
I am excited to begin a new year at MMS and cannot wait to meet your child!
