Teacher: Ms. Crystal Burgess

Family info: I am a born and raised Nebraskan from a small town called Minden.  My mom and grandparents still live there.  I am an only child so it is really nice to be living so close to my family.

Ministry Experience:  I graduated from Concordia in Seward in 1997.  After graduating I went to Illinois where I taught for 10 years in Lutheran Schools.  In 2007, I received a Call from Trinity Lutheran School in Litchfield Park, Arizona.  I taught first grade for eight years there.  I am blessed to start my nineteenth year of teaching in Lutheran Schools at Trinity Lutheran School in Lincoln.

Hobbies: I enjoy scrapbooking, playing and watching sports, reading (wish I had more time) and surfing the web to find good websites and apps to use in the classroom.

Favorite Bible verse: “I can do all this through Him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13

Kids’ Quotes: “She’s really nice. You can always hear the 4th Graders having fun.”
