Mr. Jim Burgess

This is my 21st year of teaching, and my 17th year here at the best middle school in the United States--DWMS!  I'm originally from California, and my family and I decided to make Missouri our home in 1995.  I stay busy here at Delta!  I'm an assistant football coach with 8th graders, assistant forensics coach, and scholar bowl coach.  Plus, I sponsor the school spelling bee! 

I've been married to the same wonderful lady for 40 years, and we have three grown children (one teaches here in Blue Springs!).  Here's my educational background:

Bachelor of Science, University of Maryland

Master of Arts, Webster University

Graduate Certificate, Reading Specialist, UCM

Educational Specialist, University of Missouri

I love teaching 6th and 7th grade.  These are wonderful human beings, and I know I am blessed!

My planning time without students is from 12:45-1:30.  You may contact me via the phone number to the left during this time, or before/after school.
