Ms. Desire'e Burnett

Hello Oiler Family!

My name is Ms. Burnett, and I am your child's English I teacher. I am from Leesville, Louisiana and have been living here in Texas since 2014. I teach 9th Grade English, serve as my department's ELA I Team Lead, and am the sponsor for the Class of 2024. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in English at McNeese State University in Lake Charles, Louisiana and my Master's in Educational Administration at Texas Southern University. This will be my seventh year teaching English I on the secondary level and my first year teaching Practical Writing. Each year brings new surprises. I cannot wait to share my love for education with the incoming freshmen here at Pearland High School.

I strongly believe it is our job to effectively prepare our students for life beyond high school. I am so glad to be able to assist our future generation in their journey to academic success. To ensure a successful year in my class, please familiarize yourself with the course syllabus.

"Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today."-Malcolm X
