Degrees and Certifications:
Hello everyone, My name is Niquita Burnette and I have been with Southwest since March 2021. It has been a wonderful experience working here.
Just to give you a little information about myself. I was born and raised in Jacksonville, NC. I graduated from White Oak in 2003. I blessed to be able to go to college and graduated from North Carolina Central University in 2007. I got my Bachelor of Science in Family and Consumer Sciences specialized in Child Development and Family Relations. I returned to school and got another Bachelor of Science in Family and Consumer Sciences specialized in Birth- Kindergarten, in 2016.
I have one son who will be starting his first year of high school. I have been working with children for 15 years. I started working in early childhood education in 2007. I was a NCPK teacher for many years. I worked as an EC Pre-K teacher and later became an EC TA before I started working at Southwest. I have always enjoyed working with children and it is my passion.
I plan on having a great year with my new students learning new information. I hope my students will take the information they learn in my class and apply to their lives. I believe it takes a village to raise a child. I want to thank you for letting me be apart of your village.
