After High School I attented the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.While in the education program I was part of the science co-hort and enjoyed many amazing experiences. I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education with a concentration in Psychology. I also earned a Academically Gifted teaching certification from the University of Pembroke.


 Hi, my name is Jodi Burkholder.  I teach fifth grade at Archdale Elementary School. This is my ninth year teaching at Archdale and I look forward to many more exciting years to come.  I love teaching here at Archdale because not only are we the BEST SCHOOL in North Carolina, but we have the BEST STUDENTS as well.

      I live with my husband Adam, our son Aiden, our daughter Kora, and our dog Boone.   When I am not in school I enjoy hiking, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. I love being out in nature and getting my hands dirty with some good science! I am also a proud member of the GEMS club here at school! 

    This school year our fifth graders will be learning so many new things. We have a newly updated curriculum in North Carolina and that has brought about several changes for our fifth graders. I am excited to watch these boys and girls learn and grow and rise up to meet the new challenges placed before them. Below you will find two links that will offer further explaination of these changes and how you can help support your child at home.  Our fifth graders even get to go on the 3 day Camp Caraway trip which is a big highlight to our year. 

      I am looking forward to a great year filled with wonderful students and memories. My door is always open so please feel free to stop by and see what we're up too, we love the extra help! :-)
