About Mrs. Burkhard

Meet Mrs. Burkhard

My name is Kirsten Burkhard and I am so excited to be your 5th grade teacher!  This year, we will explore and discover Language Arts and Social Studies. Together, we will build a strong classroom community where we can share our love of learning!   

This is my second year teaching at KIS and my 19th year teaching.  Prior to this year, I have taught at the elementary and middle school levels in both traditional and online schools.  My most recent experience has been teaching 1st and 4th grades in Kenston.  I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and Guidance from Ohio University and a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from Ursuline College.  In addition, I obtained a K-12 Reading Endorsement from Notre Dame College. Outside of teaching, I enjoy reading, taking walks and spending time with husband and two children.  

I am thrilled to begin this exciting  journey with you! I look forward to seeing you learn, grow and have a fantastic year in 5th grade!
