  • Hello! My name is Jennifer Burns. I teach fifth grade at Carlock Elementary. I received my Bachelor’s degree from Illinois State University and my Master’s degree from American College of Education in Curriculum and Instruction. I began my career teaching in 3rd grade at Brigham Elementary and Cedar Ridge.  I became a fifth grade teacher at Carlock in 2016. 


    I live in Normal with my husband.  We have been married for 26 years and have one son, a daughter and a son-in-law!  


    Some of my interests are camping, shopping, and spending time with my family and friends.  I absolutely LOVE Disney World and my favorite Disney park is Magic Kingdom.   My family and I try to go once a year to the most magical place on Earth!


    I truly love teaching!  Every day brings about new challenges,  funny stories, great learning, and my favorite are those “light bulb moments” students have in the classroom.  I am looking forward to another wonderful year!
