Welcome to Mrs. Burrows' Website!

 Welcome! I love my career and am thankful to be teaching fifth grade at Midway Elementary School. I moved down from Michigan in 2005 to begin my teaching career in Cumberland County. I have a six-year-old son, a three-year-old daughter and a wonderful husband who helps me to keep it all going!

I will be teaching Social Studies and English Language Arts (Reading/Writing/Grammar) to some of the most dynamic students in the county. Go Raiders!


Please keep up with your monthly Reading Log. Read for 20 minutes, four times each week. November Reading Log will be due Monday, December 1st, after Thanksgiving Break.

Do you know that the Reading EOG Test will have 52 questions?

  • About 40% Literature Comprehension (stories/poems)
  • About 40% Informational Comprehension 
  • About 20% Language (vocabulary/word meanings) 

 Please sign and return the ELA Benchmark scores. I will send home a copy to keep and use for reference. If you are looking for ways to help, I suggest searching the Internet by standard. Also, students have been given usernames and passwords to This is an excellent site for students to practice reading at their own level.
