Mr. Justin Rekoff
Years of experience: 7 years
This will be my first year at Burnet and my 7th year teaching overall. I have previously taught 3rd grade for 4 years and also PE for 2 years. I'm excited to be back in 3rd grade, this year I will be teaching Reading, Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies. I have a Bachelor's degree in History from the Univeristy of Houston Clear Lake and a teaching certificate through Texas Teachers Alternative Certification program. I'm also a proud B.O.I. (Born on the Island) and Ball High School graduate. I hope to create a fun and safe environment here in my classroom and I have high expectations for each student. Together we will we also incorporate the use of technology to help us reach those expectations. I was born and raised here in Galveston and I absolutely love the island. Together my wife and I have two children, my son Tristan who is 6 years old and my daughter Lyndie who is 2 years old. We love traveling, and spending as much time on the beach as we can.
This year we will be utilizing Class Dojo as our main source of communication, so if you haven't done so, please download the app to sign up. You can also always email or call if you need anything. I'm excited to work with you and your child and look forward to having a great year.
