Ms. Mindi Burns
My name is Mindi Burns, and it is my first year teaching here at the magnificent Port Neches-Groves High School. I teach Engligh IV and UT OnRamps Rhetoric (Dual enrollment college class). I am an adjunct college professor for the University of Texas Austin. I am so very honored to be part of such an extraordinary campus and district. I graduated from Lamar Sate College Orange in 2015 with my Associates in Education (AAT 2 or Secondary Education). I also graduated from Lamar University Magna Cum Laude in December of 2017. I obtained my Bachelors of Arts in English Language & Literature and a minor in pedagogy. I am a member of Lamar University’s English Honor Society, Sigma Tau Delta. To become a member of Sigma Tau Delta the undergraduate/graduate must have a GPA of a 3.5 or higher, and the undergraduate/graduate must rank at least in the highest thirty-five percent of his/her class. During my time at Lamar University I participated in the study abroad program. I spent several weeks in Japan studying language, culture, and history. I underwent language, literature, and culture classes at Yasuda Women’s University in Hiroshima. I truly enjoy studying other societies' cultures and literature. Literature is one of my biggest passions in life, and I am honored to share my passion with my students.
