Hi! I'm Whitney Burns, and I am an 8th grade social studies teacher. I have been teaching here at Owen Middle School for the past eighteen years, and have been teaching social studies exclusively for the past fifteen. In 8th grade, we will learn US history with a focus on NC. We also focus on current events, sharing news articles every week on events happening in the world.
My husband Sam and I have a son named Henry and a daughter named Emilyn. When I am not working or playing with my children, I'm usually cheering on my alma mater, Carolina! I love Tar Heel basketball and Gamecocks football! I also like to read, go to the movies, and hang out with my family and friends. I love teaching and am proud to be a member of the Owen Middle School faculty.
