Mrs. SamAntha Burns 

Teacher of Health/Social Well Being



Welcome to the 2019/20 school year! 


I am excited to be taking this position, as a new growth step in my teaching career, leaving the classroom of teaching all subjects, to focusing on guiding/teaching students about making healthy choices.  Whether that be in food and exercise, their interactions with others, positive choice making and the impacts that can have for them or even how to handle some of the “hard” things friendships and days can bring.  This is something that I feel very strongly about and found myself wanting to reach others further than just my classes of 24 each year. 


While I am new to PCE, I am not new to Douglas County Schools.  I have been with the district for over 20 years teaching grades from Kindergarten to 3rd. 


Through the school year I am supported by my wonderful family. My husband Gary, who works for the town of Parker as a signal technician and my three wonderful children that are now working to find their own pathway in life. My oldest daughter Kaela, who is starting her own family, my second daughter, Alyson, who is a teacher of 2nd grade in TN and my son, Neal, who attends Tennessee Tech University, studying Political Science through the Army ROTC program. 


In my time away from school I enjoy spending time with friends and family enjoying activities of hiking, kayaking or some backyard playing. I enjoy walking and find that it is a good way to process my day or relax to be ready for what may be coming next. When I have time for myself, usually on my school breaks, I really enjoy reading books!


I am looking forward to begin getting to know the students and families of PCE.  If at any time you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me at my school email address:  samantha.burns@dcsdk12.org.
