Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Gina Burd

I am beginning my eleventh year as an English teacher at Milford High School.  In my classroom, the focus is on improving both critical thinking and writing skills; these skills will be invaluable to all students in whatever path they choose after MHS.

 I earned a BA degree at Wheaton College in Creative Writing and English Literature in 2002.  In 2005, I completed my MA degree in English Literature and Writing at Brandeis University.  My graduate coursework focused predominantly on American and women’s literature. 

 I am also the Peer Mediation coordinator; the program focuses on resolving conflict and building a positive social atmosphere at the school.  It is incredibly important to me that a safe, comfortable learning environment is created by emphasizing the importance of equality, tolerance, and respect.

 I am always available before or after school for extra help on an upcoming essay or assignment!
