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!


We will be watching The Polar Express on Thursday. Students are allowed to wear their pajamas with regular shoes, no slippers. 

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) 

 Students have been given usernames and passwords to This is an excellent site for students to practice reading at their own level.
