Meet The Teacher!
Hi! My name is Dana Wilson and I love teaching at G.C. Burkhead! This will be my 14th year of teaching in the classroom. I began my career as a third grade teacher in Holly Springs, Georgia. I moved back to Elizabethtown and taught in a kindergarten and first grade classroom at Morningside Elementary for 2 years. I have spent the last 10 years at G.C. Burkhead teaching kindergarten, first, and third grade. I enjoy teaching first grade and watching my students learn and grow throughout the year.
I have a Bachelor's of Science degree and a Master's degree in Elementary Education from Western Kentucky University. I love being in the classroom and helping my students learn academically and grow into responsible and caring individuals.
I have two assistants that work in my classroom. Ms. Dawn works with me during math and KSI time to help facilitate small groups. Ms. Lisa works with me during my small group reading time. Both of these ladies help me tremendously and they work hard to get to know each of my students.
I have been married to my husband, my highschool sweetheart, for 22 years and we have two beautiful daughters. We enjoy watching movies, going to the beach, and going to concerts together.
If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me at any time. I always check my email, so that is the very best way to get in touch with me quickly. Also make sure and join Remind 101 to receive classroom announcements. I can't wait to spend the next year learning and growing with your child!
