Meet Ms. Burdett

Welcome to the Second Grade!  My name is Debbie Burdett and I'm so excited to be teaching 2nd grade!  This will be my 21st year teaching at Addison, and around 12 of those years have been in 2nd grade!  I've taught grades 1st-5th at Addison, but my favorite by far is 2nd grade!

I am originally from Georgia, and my family and I live in Woodstock in the Towne Lake area.  We have one adorable son named Ryan.  He is 9 years old and is in the 3rd grade in Cherokee County.  We spend lots of time swimming at the pool or watching Ryan play baseball!

I'm really looking forward to a great school year with you and your family!!!
