Andrew Burnham grew up in the small town of Bath, Maine. He studied elementary education while at the University of Maine. He began his teaching career at a residential facility in Central Massachusetts where he taught students with special needs for three years. While working at the residential school, he decided to pursue his Master’s degree in special education. He went on to teach exceptional learners at the elementary, middle and high school levels (for four, seven, and two years, respectively).
Andrew earned his Doctorate degree from Tennessee State University in order to pursue teaching in higher education. He currently serves as a professor of education, and he greatly enjoys passing his classroom knowledge and experience to teacher candidates at Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville.
Dr. Burnham’s areas of expertise include reading remediation, special education advocacy facilitating IEP meetings, behavioral intervention, and public school procedures. In his spare time, Andrew can be found in the stern of a Whitewater canoe paddling rapids with his wife. He and his wife have three adult children and reside on a few acres in Spring Hill, Tennessee.
