Mrs. Kristine Burton
Welcome to Kindergarten!!! The BEST place to be at school! :)
I have been teaching young children with Mesa Public Schools for 23 years, 20 of which have been here at Hermosa Vista Elementary. I am thrilled to be working in tandem with Sra. Humes in the Dual Immersion Program. She's an amazing lady and teacher. I am so excited to have your child this year and can't wait to share that excitement and passion for learning with them! It will be a year full of educational opportunities and discoveries!
I received a Bachelor of Arts in Education Degree from Arizona State University, with emphasis in Early Childhood Development. I have taught at-risk pre-school, Young Kindergarten and Kindergarten for all 23 years of my career. I absolutely LOVE being with your children and seeing them grow and develop throughout the year. Each day is a new adventure with them!
I have been married for 32 years and have two married children, two grandsons, one grand daughter and another granddaughter on the way! We love to spend time together boating, wake boarding, being at Lake Powell, quadding, traveling, being outdoors, playing games or just being together! :)
