Hello! My name is Melanie Burke and this is my fourth year teaching at Peabody. I've spent 11 years teaching both 3rd and 4th grade at Whitman Elementary in Littleton and am excited for another year at Peabody. My family moved to Colorado from Bay City Michigan when I was in 4th grade. I attended many schools in Littleton from elementary through high school and have a genuine fondness for the area and school systems. My professional education includes a Bachelors of Arts degree in English with a minor in Special Education from the Metropolitan State College of Denver. I also hold a Master of Arts degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Math and Science from the University of Colorado at Denver. When I'm not teaching I enjoy running, skiing, rollerblading, reading, gardening and cooking. My husband (Eric) and I have a son (Tyler) who keeps us on our toes! Looking forward to a great year!
