Mrs. Kristen Burcham
Welcome to Kindergarten!!! My name is Kristen Burcham and I am so excited to be your child's kindergarten teacher. I have been teaching at Hosack for the past 5 years as the gifted support teacher/ESAP teacher. Prior to teaching at Hosack, I was the Autistic Support teacher at Marshall Elementary School for 7 years. I have my bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and my master's degree in Special Education. I have had many wonderful experiences during my career at North Allegheny, which I believe have helped me get to this point. I truly have a passion for working with young learners and helping them discover their potential!
When I am not teaching you can find me in Zelienople with my family. I have sent 3, very different children off to kindergarten over the past few years. I understand all the feelings that come with sending your babies off to school. I want you to feel like you can come to me with any question or concern, as I truly feel that this is a team approach. It takes a village to raise a child, and I am lucky enough to be in your child's village. I want what is best for your child and will work very hard to inspire a deep love of learning from the start!
