Mrs. Burres began teaching at HCA in 1996. She taught fourth grade for five years. She has since taken time off for her family over the years, but has been teaching the enrichment class (GATES) part-time at HCA since 2003. These classes are offered for third through fifth-grade students. It is a pull out program that meets one afternoon a week to challenge our students who excel in the regular classroom.
More recently, Mrs. Burres has also assumed leadership of HCA’s lower school STEM program, where she challenges our students in their science, technology, engineering, and mathematics skills, encouraging their innovation and creativity.
