Welcome! My name is Mrs. Slack (formerly Ms. Burgin!) and I will be working with your child during Physical Education Class this school year!
I grew up in Loudoun County, went to Virginia Tech where I earned Bachelor of Arts in Communication. I decided teaching was in my future so I continued my education and went to Emory & Henry College to get my Masters in Education and Physical Education licensure.
Coming from a long lineage of teachers, I feel passionate about helping students improve their self-esteem through physical activity as well as enable students to develop positive attitudes and behaviors towards physical fitness and lifetime sports.
In my free time I enjoy taking and teaching Pure Barre, tap dancing and reading. I also love to bike and hike with my husband as well as play and nap with my Black Lab/Australian Shepherd dog, Lady! I’m looking forward to a GREAT and active school year!
Feel free to email me with any questions! Don’t forget to check out our PE section of the Lowes Island website for more information on our curriculum!
