Hello LVA Families! My name is Kaity Burns, but the kids call me Miss. K. I am so thrilled to be joining LVA’s staff this year as the 5th grade teacher. I am anticipating a wonderful school year ahead!
I grew up in Livermore and I have just recently moved back to town after spending some time in the Sacramento Area. I have a B.A. from Arizona State University, a certificate in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language), and am currently attending American University pursuing my Masters degree in Legal Studies. I have a dog named Khan and I love him so much! I come from a family of teachers -both my mom and sister teach-and my best friend is also a teacher.
I have worked with kids for what feels like a long time now, and have come to realize that it is truly my passion, and now I am able to embrace this passion by teaching at LVA in a classroom setting. There is nothing better than knowing you have made a difference in someone’s life, especially that of a child. And I am dedicated to providing my students with a safe place to learn and grow. There is never shame in making mistakes and asking questions.I am really looking forward to getting to know your child and watching them achieve their highest potential!
