Mrs. Kelly Burgess
Mrs. Burgess has been teaching at St. John the Evangelist for 24 years. She moved to Maryland from Ohio after graduating from the University of Dayton. (Fun Fact: Miss Benko and Mrs. Burgess graduated from the same college, twenty years apart!) All four of her children attended SJE as did her husband.
She is one of the few remaining Bengals fans, but she has also learned to love the Redskins.
Hanging out on a beach, reading a book, and drinking iced tea is her dream day. Her extended family travels to Florida every summer and they make quite an impression when all 30 settle in for the day.
She loves to watch her children play sports and also enjoys watching the different SJE teams compete. Catholic School Week is her favorite week of the year.
Next year she'll have three children in college and one in high school! It will be sad and happy all at once. She loves teaching at SJE and feels lucky to have spent her teaching career here.
Mrs. Claire North
Mrs. North has been at her "temporary job" as a resource teacher for 15 years because she loves nothing more than getting paid to act like a kid! Outside of school, she loves going on adventures with her family, experimenting in the kitchen, and planning future travels.
