2nd Grade

Mrs. W. White - Teacher

My name is Wendy White and I am so excited to be your child’s 2nd grade teacher. This is my 21st year teaching at Burnham School. I also attended Burnham School and grew up in Burnham. So, I have a true love for our school. Burnham is a wonderful school that has many caring and special staff members and students. I am very fortunate to be part of the Burnham Family.

I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I received my degree from Purdue University. I enjoy being with my family, traveling, and scrapbooking. I spend much of my time watching my kids play sports.

I am married and have three beautiful children. Kyle is going to school to be a pharmacist. Brent is a senior and an incredible baseball player. Kailey is in 4th grade and loves to swim, play softball, golf and is in gymnastics. I consider myself very lucky to have such a wonderful family.

 My students are a very important part of my life. It’s going to be a fun year full of learning and adventure. I hope this school year will be a memorable one for your child. It is my goal to give my students the skills they need to be successful 2nd graders.

We will be learning many new things in 2nd grade. We have a new math program this year. We are excited to learn many new math concepts and practice the ones we already know. As always, reading is so very important. The most important thing you can do with your child is read to them, with them and have them read to you.

I hope you and your child has a great year. If you have any questions or concerns don’t hesitate to call or let me know.
