Mrs. Valerie Burgess is by far the most deserving of this recognition. She is the definition of a true leader and a phenomenal mentor. Valerie Burgess welcomes everyone with open arms and pours her love, knowledge, and support wherever she can. I met Mrs. Burgess years ago and I still remember our first conversation to this day.

Mrs. Burgess is a passionate and dedicated Teacher Leader that goes beyond the call of duty in education. She exemplifies this through her daily instructional practices, relationships with her students and colleagues, and through her work in the community. Education would be so much better if all educators had the drive, determination, passion, and will like Valerie Burgess! Valerie, keep being that driving force for our students!
You Go Girl!!! I have known all along that you would and could be the encourager that you are today. Keep up the great work.
Mrs. Burgess is a great teacher and example for the students at Edisto Elementary School. She has taught both of my girls, whom both love her dearly. She is patient and takes time to make sure all of the students understand the lesson that is being taught, will stay after school to give them extra help when needed. Thank you Mrs. Burgess for loving the kids in our community as if they are your own and making them see that they can be a leader! We love you!
Ms. Burgess works tirelessly for her students and is always ready to a helping hand to her fellow coworkers. With the afterschool program, "My Sister's Keepers" , she helps mentor young ladies to reach for the stars with their educational pursuits while she guides them with that little extra push to strive for Excellence in all that they do. As a former co-worker with Ms. Burgess, I know well that she has a heart for her school family and is always ready to lend a helping hand!
There are many words that come to mind when describing my friend Valerie. She is a dedicated educator who loves her students and makes sure that they receive all the tools possible to be successful and life-long learners. She is always involved in the summer enrichment program which helps students become prepared for the rigors of middle school and beyond. In working with the My Sister's Keeper program, she grooms girls to become outstanding women, like herself, who have values, self-respect, and hard-working ethics. Valerie is a dynamic community leader and a true friend. She richly deserves to be recognized for her efforts in all aspects of education and otherwise.
Valerie is truly a life changer!
Great leader in the community!
Valerie, we are so proud of you! Keep up the great work of touching the lives of our youth. You are an impressive Math teacher! You have a special way of teaching Math and reaching children. You are so deserving of this recognition. I sent a letter to our Editor, Lee Harter on your behalf. Please keep me updated on the progress and outcome.
Oh, keep going above and beyond by working with the girls clubs, summer enrichment and tutoring!
I can describe Mrs. Burgess as a 21st century educator because she has a high and quality performance in all aspects of learning: she sees to it that her students become critical thinkers, problem solvers, team players, responsible decision makers, and possess 21st century lifelong skills. She is also a great classroom manager and provides activities to her students that help enhance students’ capacity to integrate learning moments for holistic character formation that bring about right relationships with fellow students, faculty, staff, administrators, and others.
