Mrs. Emily Burrows
Welcome to 8th grade! I am so excited to be teaching 8th grade Language Arts this year. I began my teaching career in the middle school setting, and I’m happy to still be teaching this age group. I believe these formative years are some of the most critical in a child’s life. I look forward to building relationships with my students and challenging them to not only grow in knowledge, but to also build character.
I am originally from Tennessee, but I married a Georgia boy, and the rest is history. I have been happily married to my husband, Joe, for over 19 years. I have three beautiful children, Lily (18, Freshman in the ClemsonLIFE program at Clemson University), Georgia (16, Junior at Cartersville High School), and Hudson (7, 2nd grader at Cartersville Primary). I also have a 3-year-old Golden Retriever named Juniper Berry (aka-Junie) who is quite possibly the sweetest dog ever.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy reading, thrifting, running/working out, watching our favorite sports teams play (Georgia Bulldogs (football) Atlanta Braves (Baseball) and Kentucky Wildcats (Basketball), and spending time with our church family. I love the community of Cartersville and truly believe that it is unparalleled.
