Mrs. Burns

I LOVE working with children! I am in my 26th year of teaching, and 22 of those years have been with Sherman ISD! I am the music teacher at Neblett Elementary for students in kindergarten - 4th grade.

I wanted to be a teacher ever since I was eight years old! After graduating from Denison High School, I earned degrees from Austin College and Southeastern Oklahoma State University. After teaching for four years in Denison ISD, I came to Perrin Elementary in Sherman, where I taught 3rd grade for eleven years. I joined Percy W. Neblett Elementary when it opened in 2008, and am one of ten teachers still here from Neblett's first year. After teaching 3rd and 4th grades for many years, I became Neblett's music teacher in 2017. Besides teaching music, I am the sponsor for the Neblett Dynamite Drummers and Neblett Choir for third and fourth grade students.

My husband Scott and I have three children. Parker and Olivia are twins who attended elementary school at Neblett, and graduated from Sherman High School. Our oldest son Jeremy is also a teacher, and he and his wife Sheridan live in Oklahoma. Our family also includes our two cats, a German Shepherd, a Husky, and a Yorkie.
I love reading, attending Broadway musicals, and listening to 80's music! There's no place I'd rather be than Neblett Elementary!
