Ms. April Burkhardt

English II Pre-AP

Hi! My name is April Burkhardt, and I teach English II Pre-AP. I studied Education at the University of Kansas and received my B.A. in English from the University of Oklahoma. I have been teaching since 2002 but 2019-20 will be my first year at Ball High School. I am looking forward to a successful, challenging and fun school year with my students! I challenge students every year to be successful products of their community, but not without the guidance and support from myself and their school. I encourage parents to be active participants in their child's education.

I have two dogs, a Corgi named Teddy and a retriever mix named Sissy--they are the lights of my life and are a source of constant entertainments. In my spare time I enjoy reading, going to the beach and going to the movies.

I hope to instill a passion for reading and writing in my students, and am looking forward to an amazing year!
