Ellen '23

Favorite tradition: "The Amazing Race!"
  • Started at Burke: 9th Grade
  • Favorite challenge: "Balancing the musical with my schoolwork. Musical theater is one of my passions, but I also take my grades really seriously. It was a difficult schedule and work balance, but I think it was worth it."
  • Favorite tradition: "The Amazing Race! Before I started in freshman year, the school combined new and old students into teams to compete in all sorts of mini-challenges."
  • Teacher shout-out: "I used to dread working on math, but because of Jamie's kindness, organization, and teaching methods, 10th Grade Geometry became my favorite class!"
