"Ms. Burkle is a teacher who should be recognized for her endless resolve, devotion to her students, individualization towards student success and family involvement. She has just the right balance of compassion for her students, support without enabling, and boundaries that promote independence. Ms. Burkle takes each opportunity to make her families feel heard and supported. She has gone above and beyond to accommodate my child's unique needs, collaborate with general education teachers and work vigilantly to "close the gap" for instructional delays for my daughter. Without Ms. Burkle, our lives would certainly not be the same. I cannot say enough about the hard work she has put in to ensure student success. Way to do "the good work" Ms. Burkle!"
