My name is April Burkett. I was born and raised in San Antonio. I'm married to my husband James and we have two children, Saleen and James. Saleen is starting high school this year and James is a 5th grader. I recieved my Bachelor's Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of the Incarnate Word in 2014. This is my sixth year at Benavidez Elementary and I'm excited to build new relationships with my students, eventhough it may be virtually. When I'm not teaching I enjoy doing anything outdoors. Me and my family go on hikes, take bike rides, go kayaking, or take trips to the river. I also love to travel! We didn't get to go anywhere this summer due to the pandemic, but I'm hoping to start traveling agiain soon!  

    This year will definitely be full of changes and challenges, but I'll be here to guide you along the way! Please reach out to me through Seesaw or email if you need anything- aburkett@southsanisd.net
