Mr. Jacob Burgess



The Fall 2021 - Spring 2022 school year will be my first year of teaching! I am very excited to teach 7th grade Social Studies as a part of the DreamCatcher Team! In my class, we will learn about the history of the world from the European Renaissance (14th Century) to the present. We will focus on topics such as Geography, Religion, Government, Economics, Warfare, Philosophy, and a variety of subtopics. 

A little bit about myself: I was born and raised in Lincoln County. I went to WLMS and graduated from WLHS. I continued my education at Appalachian State University where I earned my education degree. GO MOUNTAINEERS! 

My wife, Sarah teaches 1st grade at Battleground Elementary in Lincolnton. Sarah is a photographer and I play a couple instruments. I love all kinds of music! I enjoy hunting and fishing when I can. I am also a huge football fan. I, of course, pull for the Carolina Panthers, App State Mountaineers, and the WLMS Chiefs and WLHS Rebels!

For Parent/Teacher Conferences: The best way to get in contact with me is via email. We can set up phone calls as well as face to face meetings (depending on covid measures) via email confirmation. My planning period is 9:54 - 11:24, this is the best time to reach me. I can also be flexible to set up meeting times.
