Rebecca Burnfin



Hi, I am Becca Burnfin a 6th-grade lead teacher in Garden City by way of Montana and originating from California. I started a Bernadine Sitts Intermediate Center in 2013.  I have also taught ESL at the college level and mini level. I currently teach Social Studies and Science and also tutor ESL students K-4 at Gertrude Walker Elementry

My bachelor's degree is in Liberal Arts (Elementry Education) from California State University, San Bernardino and my master's degree is in the art of teaching from Liberty University with my thesis focusing on play-based learning.

I consider myself a superstar unicorn (because unicorns serve as a reminder to believe in ourselves) in student-based instruction, which means taking myself out of the front of the classroom and integrating myself into my students' learning experience they are the leaders in my room. I am a firm believer that we must use technology as an appropriate tool- not just a task, and often!

In 2016, I was the Crystal Apple Winner for Finney County, and in 2017 I was a Kansas Horizon Award Winner.

I am, like many of you, a consumer of education, I have two beautiful boys- Chase and Sloan, who love learning and teaching me not to always take life so seriously and that everything relates to dinosaurs! 

I can't wait to meet you and create wonderful learning experiences for students! Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you might have, I look forward to connecting with you. 

In the first month of the 2020-2021 I will be on maternity leave. However, I will be completely available for you and your student and any questions you might have. Please contact me via email.
