Peter Burvenich

My name is Pete Burvenich and I am entering my 27th year as an educator in the Beaufort County School system. I am originally from Bay Shore, New York. I moved down to Beaufort, South Carolina in 1993 and started my first year of teaching at Robert Smalls Middle School teaching 8th grade math and science. Over the past 25 years I have taught at Joseph Shanklin Elementary School, Whale Branch Elementary School, Broad River Elementary School, Whale Branch Middle School, and now at Whale Branch Early College High School. The most important things to me about education are molding students to become successful members of society once they leave high school. For the 2018-2019 school year I am teaching the following courses: Algebra 1, Algebra 1 Honors, SREB Ready for High School Math, and Foundations in Algebra. 
Over my 26 years of teaching I have been named the Teacher of the Year twice both at Joseph Shanklin Elementary School and Whale Branch Middle School. I have also had the opportunity to work on the South Carolina Mathematics Standards support document for the College and Career Readiness Standards that were revised in 2015. I am a highly qualified educator in elementary education, middle school mathematics, and secondary mathematics.
