TEACHER SPOTLIGHT FOR APRIL

TEACHER SPOTLIGHT FOR APRIL

We are so grateful for our awesome teachers here at ALA. Meet Dr. Burr, our April teacher spotlight.

Q: HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WORKING AT ALA, AND WHAT DO YOU TEACH?

A: This is my first year at ALA and I teach the construction classes.

Q: WHERE DID YOU GO TO COLLEGE?

A: This is kind of a long one. I have an Associates degree from BYU in Architectural Technology, a Bachelors degree from UNLV in Vocational Education, a Masters degree also from UNLV in Curriculum and Instruction and I have a Doctorate degree from Oklahoma State University in Occupational and Adult Education.

Q: WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES?

A: I like sports (just to watch them now that I am old) but I especially enjoyed playing football and basketball and running track. My senior year in high school I actually lettered in four sports! I also like the out-of-doors. I have a side-by-side and I like to go exploring in the great outdoors. But most of all, I like being a husband, father and grandfather.

Q: WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT ALA?

A: I love being with the kids and the comradery of working for and with such good people who share common ambitions. I appreciate education. I like seeing the light come on in a child’s eyes when a concept is finally attained. ALA provides me with opportunities to have all of that and more.
