My motivation for teaching:
Teaching is a job I never get tired of. Each year is like getting a new job. New students, new faculty members, and new material each year make this the perfect career for me as I love changes rather than repetition.

My favorite quote:
"A mother is love you never outgrow."

A personal humorous school story:
I was standing in front of the classroom teaching when a girl student came up to me and whispered in my ear, "Mrs. Burk, your zipper is down." In an instant I turned away from the class, made an inconspicuous circle, while zipping my pants as fast as possible before turning back to face the class. (I have no idea how many students noticed this but didn't tell me.)
