Staley Original: Cherie Burgett

15 Original Staff Members Left In School's 15th Year

     When the school first opened, journalism teacher Cherié Burgett was responsible for all the journalism classes at the school. STTV, Legacy and Talon were all taught by her as well as the intro classes.

     Currently, Burgett advises Talon, Legacy and StaleyNews. Burgett said these classes were particularly special to her. 

     “Those are the kids that choose to be here,” Burgett said. “Every year I find new kids that are relatable, and they become like family to me.” 

     Though Burgett had a background in journalism, teaching it to high school students was an adjustment. Burgett said that she learned alongside her students in the first few years. 

     “Those kids helped me build this program,” Burgett said. “While I was a good journalist, I had no idea how to make a newspaper or a yearbook. We all learned it together.”
