Mrs. Carey Burke

Welcome to First Grade!

My name is Carey Burke and I am thrilled to be a part of the Bear Creek family! I so look forward to working with your family to make this the best first grade year! We will take an interactive approach to learning to help set the stage for a life long love of learning. It is my personal goal to make sure each child knows they are an important, necessary member of our community who is loved and cared for each day at school.

A little about me and my family. My husband Ryan and I have been married for 9 years and are high school sweethearts (cute, right?!). We have two children, our daughter Collins is 3 and our son Penn is 1. They are absolutely amazing little humans who teach me SO much every day! They LOVE all things outside: the messier, the better! I graduated from Penn State University with my B.S. in Elementary Education and my Masters from The College of New Jersey as a Reading Specialist. When not teaching, I can be found enjoying all things Colorado with my family, watching sports or napping! 

I believe in the power of a strong home and school connection. There will be opportunities for classroom volunteers throughout the year. If you have any questions, please see the below contact information. Email is the best way to reach me. I look forward to a fabulous first grade year at Bear Creek!
