Burns, Whitney -- Social Studies (8th)

Teacher Bio

     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 twenty-two 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.
