Ms. Leigha Burnham

Hello, I'm Ms. Leigha Burnham. I am super excited to begin my 2nd year here at AMS and my 21st year in education! 

I hold degrees from Berry College, Jacksonville State University, and the University of West Georgia. My career has been very diverse, as I have worked as a high school teacher, a media specialist, and as an instructional technology specialist. My hope is that this wide array of experience and expertise helps me serve my students well. 

I am the mom of three sons: Jace, Cason, and Tate. My boys are my greatest accomplishment in life! Jace is currently serving in the United States Navy, Cason is a Senior in high school and plans to attend college next fall, and Tate is a Sophomore in high school and marches drumline in the school band.

When I'm away from school, you might find me visiting Coastal Georgia, shopping for vintage treasures, or (of course)...reading!
