About Miss Burgett
Hello UP Panthers!
My name is Emily Burgett and I am the Speech Language Pathologist here at UP Elementary. I grew up in Marietta, GA and received my Bachelor's Degree in Special Education at The University of Georgia. I moved to Dallas, TX in 2016 and completed my Master's Degree in Speech Language Pathology at UT Dallas. I am overjoyed to continue helping children be happy communicators here at UP!
When I am not at UP, you can find me running (mostly at White Rock Lake), traveling around the globe, or cheering on my favorite football team, The Georgia Bulldogs (Go Dawgs!).
My passion lies in helping children be confident communicators to lead them to be the very best they can be in our community and throughout their lives. I strongly believe that communication is the key to relationships. I am thrilled to create these relationships with our UP Panthers, as well as providing strategies for students to help build relationships through being successful communicators!
