Andrea Burks

Instructional Coach K-2

Welcome to GFAA! I have been teaching for 10 years. I graduated with my Bachelor's in Elementary Education from The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. I am so blessed to get to teach in the primary grades and love to be the one who helps children become life-long learners.

When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband Michael and I have two children, Peyton and Kinsley. We are huge sports fans and love cheering on the Cowboys, Mavs, Rangers and Longhorns.

Instructional Coach 3-5

Hello! I'm the Instructional Coach for GFAA and this is my 8th year to work in GPISD. As the I-Coach, I help teachers with learning strategies and resources to help them be successful.

I grew up in Grand Prairie and earned my degree from Baylor University. I also have a Master's Degree from UTA with a specialization in Literacy Studies. My husband and I enjoy spending time with our son, Brandon, and we like to ride bikes, travel to the beach, and go to Six Flags. I'm so excited to be here at GFAA!!
