Teacher Appreciation Week: Mr. Burgess

2012-13BurgessBy Natalie Krafft and Evie Dunn

We finish teacher appreciation week by recognizing Mr. Burgess, who has been with Tri-City for four years and will be moving to Memphis next year. He will be sorely missed.

“He’s like the best teacher ever! He’s so funny.”
– Rebecca Kruse

“He’s the coolest teacher ever and he’s hilarious. He seems like he gets it.”
– Andy Worthington

“That man freakin’ rocks. I don’t know what else to say. He’s the best English teacher.”
– Ashley Nache

“He’s just really fun and he knows what he’s talking about.”
– Allegra Bodine

“Mr. Burgess has reinvented the humanities department at Tri-City. Without him, most of the students wouldn’t know how to write a proper essay. He teaches more than just the cookie-cutter lesson to push out essays. He helps students know why they are doing it, what makes it important. He brings greater meaning to every advertisement, sentence, and phrase. He will not only be missed, but remembered.”

-Kelcie Kruse

Tri-City really appreciates what you have given to us and will most definitely miss you when you’re gone, Mr. Burgess. Thank you for all your hard work.
