My name is Barb Burke. I grew up in Kennett Square, Pa and went to St. Mark’s high school in Wilmington. I graduated from Drexel University with a bachelor’s degree in Computers Systems Management. After graduation, I worked in the computer industry for many years. When my oldest son started kindergarten, I quit my job and started working in the school system. I became a paraprofessional working with special needs students while going to school for a Master’s degree in Teaching. I am certified to teach Elementary K-6, Middle School Math and High School Business. I am married and have 3 children, with my youngest having autism. My husband and I are very involved in keeping up with advancements in the autism world. My husband, children, and I live in Quarryville, PA.
