Hello! My name is Mrs. Starks! I will be your child’s Kindergarten teacher for the 2019-2020 school year! This will be my 15th year teaching elementary school! I like to refer to my students as “Starks’ Stars” and I can’t wait to have your little star in my class!


    I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. I attended school at Academy of Detroit from K-12th grade where I graduated as Valedictorian! I attended college at Eastern Michigan University, where I studied Elementary Education and became a member of Gamma Phi Delta Sorority Incorporated. I graduated in 2005 and soon began teaching Kindergarten. That year, I met my husband of 12 years. We have a 7 year old son (who will be in 2nd grade at Highland) and a 2 year old son. We also have a dog named Shadow. We moved to NC about 2 years ago and recently moved to Burlington!
