Enrichment Specialist



Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Jan Burkhalter

Welcome to enrichment! I earned my BS in Elementary Education from Auburn University and my Masters in Gifted Education from Troy University. Before teaching enrichment and gifted classes, I have previous teaching experience in first, third, fourth, and fifth grades. This is my 15th year teaching. I am blessed to be teaching and Wrights Mill Road, and I am excited to welcome my students to enrichment!


Enrichment is a program designed for an identified group of students who need an individualized, differentiated curriculum in content, pace, breadth, depth, and/or presentation method. These students use higher level thinking skills and are challenged through concept and problem-based curriculum in all academic areas. Students in the Enrichment Pullout participate in problem solving activities, as well as individual and group projects.
