On Wednesday, January 26th at 11 am, our second grade students along with the second graders from Carver Lyon Elementary school participated in a Virtual Read with the Columbia Chapter of the Links incorporated, an organization whose motto is Linked in Friendship, Connected in Service.  The students were presented with a workbook designed to help younger readers become better readers.  We appreciate this initiative by the Columbia Links and their efforts to help our students continue to grow.

     I am Jacquitta H. Graham.  I was born and reared in the small town of Cordova, South Carolina.  I am the second child born to Monnie Jr. and Linda Graham. I  currently reside in West Columbia, SC with my two children, Josiah(10) and Zoey (2). I have been in education for 8 years. This is my third year here at Burton Pack Elementary, and I have enjoyed each and every moment. My greatest accomplishment literally happens each and every day.  My students are enthusiastic about learning, and I'm even more enthusiastic to see them soaking up all the knowledge I have to give.  I am also humbled by the experience of being chosen for the 2021 - 2022 Teacher of the Year for Burton Pack Elementary, and I will continue to inspire, care for and most importantly educate the students that I serve.

    Hello!  I am Maria Hart, school counselor at Burton Pack Elementary.  I began my career here in January 2016.  I am thrilled to be a part of the Burton Pack family.  I love my job, and I work with a team that assists me with my goals to support all students to achieve their academic, social, emotional, career, and developmental needs so they can be successful in the future.  It is indeed a pleasure to  work with the students, parents, administration, faculty, and staff at Burton Pack Elementary school.  I like to see the students come in with a smile and leave with a smile.

     Mrs. Shineka Dreher - ISS Supervisor

    I'm proud to be a part of the Burton Pack bulldog family.  As the ISS supervisor, I'm here to help solve and deescalate any issues that may occur. I am also here to teach our future doctors, lawyers, and educators that words are powerful, and we need to use them to help fellow classmates.  It is my goal to redirect action and to instill confidence in students who have been assigned to my classroom.
