Ms. Burns – Music

My name is Ms. Burns and I am so excited to begin my second year teaching music at Peaslee School! I teach music to students in grades K-3 and share my classroom with Mrs. Whalen who teaches students in grades 4 and 5. I am originally from the South Shore of MA and recently graduated from UMass Amherst, Go Minutemen! Somethings to know about me are:
– My favorite color is lime green
– I have 2 dogs and 2 cats and I love them
– I love snacks, chips, chocolate, fruit, it’s all great!
– I like to spend time at the beach

Looking forward to teaching your students this year!
