Hi, my name is Jamie Burrus, and I am excited to be part of the Thornton Middle school staff! My family relocated to the Denver area from Texas just over one year ago. I have a great husband, two cute kids- one going into third grade and one going into eighth, four dogs, a lizard and a turtle! We have enjoyed finding beautiful spots in Colorado to hike and sight see, and still are amazed by the cool evenings! I am excited to begin my 16th year in education and my first year as a Significant Support Needs Teacher at Thornton Middle School! I have had several great jobs in education to include a behavior specialist, social worker, special education lead, and a lifeskills teacher in the past. I have my Masters in Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin. I have served kids in grades Pre-K-8th, with middle school being my favorite! I love working with kids in all capacities and cannot wait to get to know the students at Thornton.
