     In addition to his love for teaching in the classroom, Mr. Burke has a passion for the game of soccer.  He has coached youth soccer for the past 16 years, and also coached high school boys soccer for 6 years.  Sports in high school can be a great learning tool for our boys and girls.  Just like in life, talent is important, but hard work will win out most of the time.  His goal is to instill that belief in the classroom with our students.
