Mrs. Lauren Burney

Welcome Valley Cubs! I am happy to be at Alexandria Middle School, where I tranferred after 11 years at the elementary school. I will be your English teacher for the 2017-2018 school year. I can't wait to see the amazing things you will accomplish before my very eyes!

I am wife to Mike Akers and mother to three wonderful children: Danielle, Lexi, and Nathan. All three of my children are grown and out of the house, so I look forward to the bonds I will undoubtedly form with all of you. In addition to my human family, I am also a proud mommy to a cat and two dogs.

My personal hobbies include reading (Harry Potter rules), baking (scones anyone), and traveling the world. I also enjoy reading up on the latest space and technological discoveries, an interest that comes in handy with my robotics team.
