Congratulations to Valerie Burleigh, 2017 Teacher of the Year at Success High School. Ms. Burleigh was surprised with balloons and flowers by 2016 Teacher of the Year, Catherine Chang. Mrs. Burleigh teaches English Language Arts at Success High School for grades 9 through 12.
Ms. Burleigh has been a teacher since 2001 and has been teaching at Success for three years. Walk into Ms. Burleigh’s classroom and you will see students relaxed and engaged in learning. You will find Mrs. Burleigh talking to her students and sitting next them assisting them with the work of the day. She believes that words have the power to change lives. No doubt her words have changed her students lives and so we honor her as Teacher of the Year.
