About Mrs. Steele
Welcome to sixth grade! My name is Becky Steele and I am thrilled to be one of your sixth grade teachers at Bursley Elementary.
I am a graduate of Grand Valley State University, where I earned a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and School Health (emphasizing elementary education) and a Master's degree in Special Education with a focus on working with students with emotional impairments. Prior to GVSU, I attended Jenison Public Schools. In my opinion, this is the best district in the state and I am thrilled to be beginning my tenth year of teaching at Bursley.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband (Preston), daughter (Tessa Mae), family, friends, and pets. Our daughter Tessa Mae will turn four in the fall and has brought endless joy to my life. Preston, Tessa Mae, and I also have two cats and two miniature dachshunds at home, ensuring that there is never a dull or quiet moment, and we are expecting baby #2 in February! My hobbies include chasing toddlers, reading, going for bike rides, shopping, home-improvement projects, traveling and camping, baking, watching movies, working on projects in my classroom, and anything mathematical.
Sixth grade is going to be a memorable year, filled with exciting challenges and rewarding experiences. A primary focus for our year together will be growing in the areas of organization, responsibility, and moral character. Strategies to be successful in these areas, combined with high academic expectations, will (I believe) prepare your child for the Junior High and beyond.
