Brilliant teacher, some kids dont like her but only because she demands respect, but in return she gives you respect. People who dont like her are just the slimy little chavs walking around the school thinking they are better than everyone else.

i was in mrs burkes biology class 1999-2001 she is the best teacher ever i love her!! she demanded respect and treated everyone as an individual and was always there for you. she should get teacher of the year!! everyone if they liked her or not always said she is a brilliant teacher! she is the reason i went to uni (although not doing biology) and why i want to be a teacher. if im half as good as mrs burkes ill be happy she is the best!!

I was in Mrs Burkes' biology class 7, nearly 8 years ago (1999-2000) and she was an absolutely excellent teacher. It is down to her that I love biology, that I studied in a biological science field at uni, and it is very much down to her that I started my teacher training as a science teacher in september last year! Hope you are still inspiring many more kids like you inspired me. All the best to you miss and a very big thank you! P.S Ive give you a 2 for easiness beacause you challenged us!

I had Mrs Burks for Biology over 12 years ago. She was, and I presume still is, an excellent teacher. Provided you study hard and make an effort she'll treat with you with a high level of respect, and she obviously cares about her students.
