Diane Burkhalter


My name is Diane Burkhalter. This is my seventh year as Literacy Strategies teacher at Wilson Junior High, and my fifteenth year teaching in the Manitowoc Public School District.

I received my Masters of Education in both reading and special education from Marquette University in Milwaukee. For over thirty exciting years, I have worked with children or youths as either a classroom, special education, or reading teacher.

One of my most memorable childhood moments was when Miss Burnt, my first grade teacher, gathered us together on the rug introducing us to her daily read aloud. She began reading Charlotte's Web by E. B. White. As she concluded the day's reading, I was hooked! Literacy is my passion.

In the words of Dr. Suess, "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you'll go."- I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!
