Meet Mrs. Burke

Hello Ho-Ho-Kus Families!  After living in Chicago for 5 years, my family moved to Bergen County!   I have 2 daughters and 1 son, Scarlett (5), Vivienne (3), & Donovan (16 months).  My family also has a 90 pound goldendoodle named Samson (6).  We have enjoyed an amazing summer with trips down the shore and daily outings to the playgrounds.  

My family loves the Jets and Notre Dame football!  My favorite season is fall; football, the beginning of school and crisp, cool weather!

I graduated from Colgate University with a degree in Mathematical Economics back in 2006.  After working in finance in NYC for a few years, I realized where my true passion lies: in education.  I obtained my Masters Degree in Elementary Inclusive Education from Teachers College, Columbia University and regard the choice of going back to school as one of the best things I ever did!  

This is my tenth year of teaching, and I couldn't be more thrilled to be a part of the amazing staff here at Ho-Ho-Kus!  My mission as a teacher is to help young people become avid and skilled readers, writers, and inquirers.  I am thrilled about the rich curriculum that awaits our 5th graders.  I can already tell that we will have a fantastic year!
