Lostra Burrow
HG Temple Intermediate School
 
Mrs. Burrow earned a Bachelor of Science in Vocational Home Economics from Lamar University. She taught the first seven years of her teaching career in Vocational Home Economics in the Rio Grande Valley and the next two years in Kennard in the same profession as well. While teaching in Kennard, Burrow was offered a position to teach sewing at Angelina College through the Community Services Division, where she still maintains today. When it was time for her youngest child to attend public school, Burrow made the decision to stay at home for a year. In 1995, Burrow was offered a teaching position in the Behavior Unit for Diboll lSD, which she accepted and worked there for three years. At the end of her time there, she accepted a teaching position in her first love, Vocational Home Economics, with Woodville ISD, where she stayed for one school year. Upon receiving that wonderful phone call from Mrs. Helen Cheshire that said, "Burrow, how about 4th grade Math? I think you would be an excellent fit for this position". Burrow said yes, and the rest is history. Burrow stayed in 4th grade math for seven years before being asked to move down to 3rd grade math. She spent three years in 3rd grade teaching math, when another opportunity arose for her to be the Math Interventionist for grades K-3 at Temple Elementary. Burrow remained in this position for two years until she was assigned back to 3rd grade math where she is presently teaching.
