Kearney Burns, Academic Behavioral Strategist


I am excited to be a Special Education Resource Teacher (SERT) at Folwell Performing Arts Magnet School!  This year I will be supporting 3rd and 4th grade students.  I recently graduated with my Masters in Special Education, Academic Behavioral Strategist from St. Thomas as part of the Grow-Your-Own program. Prior to becoming a teacher, I worked as an Associate Educator in a Kindergarten classroom here at Folwell.


My mission is to foster and create a supportive learning environment where all students feel safe to take academic risks, learn from mistakes, and grow as learners.  I am happy to be back working with some familiar faces and some new students, and I look forward to the year ahead.
