Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Burgos

My name is Bricilides Burgos-Ortiz.  I was born in Puerto Rico, the Enchanted Island.  When I was 8 years old my parents decided to give me away, so I can have a bright future.  Then, I was raised by a school principal and a police chief far away from my sibblings and family members..  I missed growing up with my family.  As time goes by, I grew up surrounded by school administrators, and law enforcement commander in chief.  That's when my passion for becoming a teacher began.  I graduated from Ponce High  School (the best), then attended Pontifical Catholic University in Ponce, P.R.  where I obtained my B.A.E.E. as an elementary school teacher.  After that I attended Fordham University in New York where I obtained my Master Degree in Elementary Education and Special Education.   I've been teaching since 1984.  I tought for 28 years in Puerto Rico (2nd,3rd,4th,5th, and 6th grades, mostly Math) .  In 2013, I decided to moved to Houston.  I started as a Math Tutor at Davila Elementary, then as an ESL teacher, and an ancillary teacher, too (where I ran a Computer Lab in Crespo Elementary).   This year, I joined the Sanchez Family as a bilingual teacher in PK and Kinder. 

My favorite quote is Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.” ― Mother Teresa. I apply this to me as a teacher.  When you love what you do, everything will become a success.
