  • Hello our Mighty McDonough Massai community of families and learners! It is my pleasure to introduce myself as one of the new administrators at McDonough Middle School. Having served in Henry County Schools for the last 10 years, it is a joy to come back to where it all began for me and continue my work to teach and lead. 

    Originally from Ohio, I graduated from THE Ohio State University in 2007. Throughout my teaching career, I have had the privilege of teaching and working in both Cobb and Henry County over the past 14 years. Over my 10 years in the classroom I taught all middle grades Social Studies, Science, and CTAE. For the past 3 years I have supported Henry County Schools High School teachers, district leaders, and school support in their use of technology in the classroom. In addition to my expertise in the classroom, I have also worked hard to further my personal education including 

    • 2010 Masters in Special Education
    • 2013 Educational Specialist in Technology in the Classroom
    • 2019 Doctorate of Philosophy in Education Law & Policy.

    As I work to get to learn about and serve our community, it is my hope that my passion for equitable education for every student in Henry County and McDonough Middle School will pour through our interactions. Please feel free to contact me via email at racheal.burden@henry.k12.ga.us or (470) 615-3460 ex. 52280 with any questions or concerns and I look forward to serving you and your learners throughout the upcoming school year.
