Mrs. Ryan Grounds

I am very excited to start my 9th year at Burnett Junior High as Principal for the 2022-2023 school year.  Burnett is an exceptional school where students are challenged and cared for every day.
This will be my 21st year in education and 11th year in Wylie ISD. I was an 8th grade science teacher and Secondary Science Specialist for Garland ISD before coming to Wylie in 2012 as the Elementary Science Specialist. 
I received my Bachelors Degree from the University of North Texas in 2000, my Masters from Texas A&M University in 2003, and my Principal Certification from Lamar University in 2015. 
I am a proud parent of the Wylie ISD community as well.  Both of my amazing kids attend Wylie East High School. My son, Noah, is enjoying his SENIOR year, is a part of the #DUBEAST Varsity Football Team, and will be attending Oklahoma State in the fall.  My daughter, Brooke, is a freshman JV Cheerleader!  
Burnett's Vision
Consistent Collaboration + Consistent Reflection + Unity/Community = There's ONLY ONE Burnett!!!!
