Welcome! My name is Katie Burwell, and I am thrilled to be your child’s 2nd grade teacher! I am a Gulfport resident and native. I went to BVE as a child and graduated from Gulfport High School in 2011. I attended the University of Mississippi where I attained a Bachelor’s of Arts in Elementary Education K-6 with an endorsement in Special Education K-12. I am currently attending Graduate School at the University of Mississippi and plan to graduate this year. This will be my fifth year at Bayou View Elementary. I started as an assistant in B.O.O.S.T then co-taught Kindergarten with Mrs. Chambliss. This will be my fourth year in 2nd grade.
A few fun facts about me are that I love reading, watching football (especially the Ole Miss Rebels and New Orleans Saints), being outside, and spending time with my family and fluffy cat, Murphy!
Teaching is my passion and my number one goal is to instill a love of learning in your child. It is important to review skills nightly and to read, read, read! 2nd grade will be an exciting year for your child. I will be adding information to this website throughout the year, so be sure to check back weekly. Feel free to contact me anytime. I look forward to working with you. Together let’s make it an amazing year!
