Mrs. Natalie Rufus

Hello! My name is Mrs. Natalie Rufus, and I love being a counselor at Burnett. 

An interesting fact about me is that I started school in junior high in Wylie. I am a graduate of Wylie High School and love working in the district that I grew up in. Wylie has passionate teachers and administrators that are for students. I have worked in Wylie ISD for many years and loved being a Spanish teacher at Burnett. The thing I loved about teaching was of course to share a passion for the Spanish language and other cultures, but it was also the connections that I made with students. I loved getting to know my students and building relationships with them. 

Now, being a counselor is my new passion. I love being able to support and encourage students as they navigate junior high. I am excited for this year and know that it will be great!
