    Favorite memory/moment in career - "Teaching students they can create anything with anything. Then I get to sit back and watch their creativity take over! Students are amazingly innovative and creative if we give them the time and confidence to perform. I especially love it when parents tell me their child is saving junk to create things at home like they get to do at school. I can remember a parent recently saying, Now Mrs. Burge, my child has a stash of stuff hidden in her room so she can make things. So....thanks a lot! I delight in the fact that my students believe in themselves enough to dream and then explore ways to accomplish that dream!"
