Mr. Burke

Fourth Grade Teacher

Hello, my name is Eric Burke and I’m excited to be a new member of the Huron Academy family.  I grew up in Massachusetts before I moved to Michigan and sometimes my Boston accent will come out.  I graduated from Oakland University in 2017 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education and a minor in language arts.  I have worked at Hope of Detroit the past five years as a sixth, fifth, and fourth grade teacher.  I enjoy working with children and believe it is important to build strong relationships.

Before I decided to become a teacher, I was an active duty member of the United States Army.  I deployed to Afghanistan for a year and learned many valuable lessons that I carry with me.  I am married and have a four year old daughter and a yellow Labrador Retriever.  Reading and writing are my passions and I love sports, especially hockey.

Please feel free to contact me at the school or send an email to burkee@huronacademy.org.
