Ms. Shirley Carawan


My name is Shirley Carawan and I am excited to be starting my 21st year in education and my first year at Burnett JH. All of my previous years teaching have been in Special Education. I have taught all levels and I am happy to be back at the junior high level.

I am originally from the Corpus Christi area and have lived in the Metroplex for 8 years. I have two daughters and sons-in-law, three grandsons, two bonus granddaughters, and one crazy Dachsund. 

I graduated from Texas A&M University, gig 'em. I am a die-hard sports fan and enjoy watching Aggie sports and Cowboy football. I also enjoy spending time with family, crafting, and traveling.

I am looking forward to a wonderful 2023-2024 school year!!
