ABOUT THE SPEAKER
 

After spending his first three years at Castro Valley High School, Jim Burke began teaching English at Burlingame High School where he has been since 1992. Prior to becoming an English teacher, he taught special education, first in private schools and later in North Africa where he served in the Peace Corps in the mid 1980s. Starting in 1998, he began writing about teaching, focusing on not only English Language Arts but also adolescent literacy in general.

Since 1998 he has published almost twenty books, the most notable of these being The English Teacher's Companion: A Complete Guide to Classroom, Curriculum, and the Profession, published by Heinemann and available in its third edition. In addition, he now serves as a senior consultant to the Holt McDougal Literature program. More recently, he has taken on new responsibilities with the NCTE and College Board and was elected this year to the NCTE Secondary Section. He has also been appointed to the College Board's Advanced Placement Course and Exam Review Commission for the English Literature and Language courses. He speaks to and works with teachers around the country, though he doesn't do this much during the school year since he teaches every day. What he really enjoy, though, is just the daily work of teaching and sharing with colleagues the lessons he learns along the way from his fellow teachers and wonderful students.
