Mrs. Ami Burgdorf
This is my 10th year teaching here at Plano West. I am teaching On-Level Physics and Anatomy & Physiology while serving as the Team Leader for both courses. Previously, I have taught AP Biology, Honors Physics, and Earth Space Science. I am currently in the process of pursuing National Board Certification. I also serve on the district's Physics and A&P curriculum writing teams.
I grew up in Florida and then Duncanville, where I graduated from Duncanville High School. I attended Texas A&M University in College Station, graduating with a B.S. in Health. I worked at CVS as a Pharmacy Technician for 3 years during college.
I am married, and have two young daughters. We have two dogs and a cat. We enjoy going on trips as a family, especially when it involves a beach or hiking.
This year, we have 4 class pets. Medusa the Blue Tongue Skink, LeFrog James the (female) Dumpy Tree Frog, Gwen the Chilean Rose Hair Tarantula, and Zuko the Leopard Gecko.
