Mrs. Gina Bursch
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! My name is Gina Bursch. I am the classroom teacher and case manager for the students in Room 3. I have been teaching students with special needs for 16 years. This is my 6th year teaching in Temecula Valley Unified School District. Previously, I taught in San Diego Unified School District, where I was born and raised. My family and I moved to Temecula in 2013 and love raising our 2 boys in this beautiful community.
I have an amazing team of paraprofessionals that work together to support the growth and learning of our students. My wonderful co-workers are Celine Sidoti, Heather Meredith, Kristine Fitzpatrick, Lisa Sleeman and Lauren Ignacz. We incorporate the curriculum from Kindergarten to Second grade with modified activities to meet the students' IEP goals. Our focus is always on independence, communication and social interaction along with academic advancement. We look forward to a fun and productive school year!
