Mrs. Tamara Collins Burson
My journey which lead to a career in education started with my many opporunities to travel. I am a graduate of Southwestern Assemblies of God University and while I was there I spent my college summers in other countries teaching and doing relief work. I fell in love with teaching the English Language to speakers of other languages.
I have spent the majority of my career as an EL specialist/instructional coach, even going back to school to complete a Masters Degree in Bilingual/ESL education. During my time in NCISD, I have strived to do my best to meet the needs of the students and staff of New Caney ISD. Starting last year I chose to go back to the classroom full-time because I missed teaching students. Even with all of the trials we faced, it was a great year.
During the 2020-2021 school year - my 21st year in education, I will be teaching College Prep English and English 2. I am excited to see what this year has in store.
