Mr. Burnham grew up in Felton on Barratts Chapel Road. He was a student in the Lake Forest School District from Kindergarten at Lake Forest North, through middle school at W. T. Chipman, until he graduated from Lake Forest High School in 2006. While at the high school, Mr. Burnham played football, wrestled, and was a member of the Track & Field team. Additionally he was in two school plays, a member of TSA, Student Council, Class Historian, and a member of National Honor Society; he loved being a student at Lake Forest High School.

After high school, Mr. Burnham went on to earn a Bachelor of Science from the University of Delaware. Before entering graduate school, Mr. Burnham work at Together Youth Shelter, a temporary shelter within the Centers For Family Services in southern New Jersey. In the midst of pursuing a masters degree from Wesley College, a local school district reached out to the school in search of a certified teacher in an area of need. As fate would have it, that school was Lake Forest High School and Mr. Burnham accepted an offer to teach; he has been at Lake Forest High since that day in October of 2013.

Mr. Burnham now resides in the town of Harrington. When not in the classroom you can find Mr. Burnham coaching the Varsity Cheerleading Squad, the Boys’ Tennis Team, and assisting the TSA/Vex Robotics teams. When not working Mr. Burnham enjoys watching sports, outdoor activities, and spending time with friends. This year he has been telling his students, “You are what you have been made to do. If you want the skill then you have to be the one who does the work”.
