Mrs. Burney, PE, Westridge Elementary Mrs. Burney is everyone’s favorite PE teacher. She’s always upbeat and greets every single child in the building with a smile. She helps students lower their level of stress, fall in love with physical activity, and try new sports. If you are in her gym, you’ll learn good sportsmanship---and that lessons are learned from both winning and losing. Outside the gym, you can find Mrs. Burney reading with students. Every morning, she has a group of students that read to her as an intervention to improve their fluency. Not only is Mrs. Burney a favorite with the students, but she is also a favorite with her peer teachers. She is always organizing activities and lending a helping hand. Just this year, for the start of the Winter Olympics, Mrs. Burney helped create a school buzz about the games. Each class became a different country, there was a torch that traveled from room to room, shuffleboard with celebrity athletes and opening ceremonies.
