Ms. Burkstrand

Hello! My name is Mackenzie Burkstrand and I am an EL teacher. This will be my first year at Highland Park Senior High School, and I am so excited to join the school community. In 2014, I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Communications from the University of Minnesota. This fall semester I will be completing my Master of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) at Hamline University. I live in St. Paul and enjoy biking, running, skiing, cooking, and reading in my spare time. I also love to travel and help others plan trips.
