Mrs. Burdick

Please email me @ cburdick@english-valleys.k12.ia.us with any questions or concerns.

I am originally from Cedar Falls, Iowa. I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in English and Psychology from the University of Northern Iowa. I continued my education at Upper Iowa University, where I received an endorsement in reading. I have been married for 17 years to Don Burdick and we have two wonderful children Keegan and Davis. Keegan is a 6th grader and Davis is 1st grader, both at English Valleys Elementary. 


I have been teaching for 14 years and this is my 8th year at English Valleys Jr./Sr. High School. In the past, I have taught 7th grade English, 8th grade English, 11th grade Basic English, Yearbook, Publications, 
World Literature, Speech, Business/Applied English, Composition, 7th grade Reading, Reading Exploratory, and Second Chance Reading. I have also served as a speech coach and drama director.

This school year, I will be teaching the Reading Exploratory, Business/Applied English, Contemporary World Literature, and Second Chance Reading. I'm also the website coordinator and will continue to serve as the speech and drama director.

My mission is to set high standards for all of my students, while helping them achieve their own goals. I believe that all students are extraordinary and every student is capable of achieving academic excellence. In addition, I believe that it is essential that students be given the tools to become life long learners, as well as productive members of society.
