Title: Special Education Teacher

Location: Calabash, North Carolina, United States

Elizabeth Ingram-Burns, special education teacher at University of Phoenix, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in special education instruction.

With 34 years of experience to her credit, Ms. Ingram-Burns has excelled as a special education teacher at the University of Phoenix since 2003. In her role, her responsibilities include teaching, planning for classes, making sure the children in the classroom are appropriately seen to, and tending to every student’s unique needs. She began her career as a special education teacher at a residential home in the 1990s. She worked as a public school teacher for 13 years. She garnered a stellar reputation as a teacher at Maysville Elementary School in North Carolina and in Horry County, South Carolina from 2019 to 2022.

Before embarking on her professional path, Ms. Ingram-Burns pursued an education at the University of Phoenix where she earned Bachelor of Sciences in elementary education in 1982. She continued her academic efforts and graduated with a master’s degree in education with a concentration in special education in 1999. She holds a National Board certification and a certification in special education. In light of her impressive undertakings, she has accrued several accolades throughout her career. She was presented with an award for Teacher of the Year at Maysville Elementary School in 2006.

Ms. Ingram-Burns attributes her success to the time she decided to significantly focus on her career. Following the loss of her husband, who suffered from a chronic illness for many years, she took financial responsibility for herself and her family. She believes this was the key to her determination and conviction. A personal and professional highlight that stands out the most to her was when she had a student in a group home who ended up getting adopted. The adoption was not going well, so she and her husband took foster care training classes to become licensed as a foster family and the student stayed with them for nine months and was able to complete her high school education.
