Hello! My name is Joseph Burns and I am thrilled to say this is my 14th year teaching art. I grew up in the St. Louis, Missouri area and graduated with a Bachelor in Fine Arts from the University of Missouri, St. Louis in 2005 and a Master of Art Education degree from the University of Florida, Gainesville in 2013. I began my teaching career in the Beaufort County School District in Eastern North Carolina. I taught ten years in this district before moving to Guilford County Schools. This year I am teaching 6th, 7th & 8Th grade art. Additionally, I am the advisor for the Art Club and serve as the Encore representative on the School Improvement Team.
Currently, I live in the Greensboro area with my girlfriend, Pennie, and dog Lou. In the afternoons during the warm months, I assist Greensboro College with the golf team. We finished the 2017-2018 season ranked 11th in the country. I also have experience coaching baseball, soccer and football. I enjoy playing competitive golf and also spend my time creating art, listening to music and traveling.
