Rebecca Burnett

Reading Specialist

I'm excited to be teaching at Mountainville Academy; it's a great place to work because of the fantastic students, parents, and staff.

After growing up playing school, I followed my dream and graduated from Brigham Young University with my degree in Elementary Education. I taught 2nd grade at Grovecrest Elementary in Pleasant Grove, Utah. My husband and I then moved to beautiful Colorado where we spent 21 years raising our four children. During that time, it was very rewarding for me to help students succeed by being a tutor, instructor, and substitute teacher. After that time our family decided to head back to Utah to be near extended family. We are so grateful for our 3 grandsons.

I love to sharpen the saw by reading, cooking, traveling, outdoor activities, gardening, attending musicals, plays, and spending time with my family. Especially our grandson!

A special bonus I have is to be able to teach at the same school as my husband. Mr. Burnett, one of the best kindergarten teachers.

What a thrill it is to help inspire students with a love of learning. This will be a fantastic year!
