Hello, my name is Kristi Burk and I teach Fifth grade at Truman Public Schools. I began my teaching career in Jackson, MN in 1996. I spent two years teaching Gifted Education and Title I in Blue Earth, MN. The rest of my career has been in Truman. I got my Bachelor’s Degree from Mankato State University in Elementary Education and my Master’s Degree from St. Mary’s University in Education.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy life on the farm. My husband, my two daughters, and I love to camp and go biking in Lanesboro, MN. I also like to read, knit, and do crafty projects.

I am looking for to a great year!

Distance Learning
I will be available Monday-Friday from 9:00-3:00 to answer questions and assist students in their daily learning. I will be available via email, Google Meet, or Google Chat. Attendance is mandatory and will be taken by email daily. Assignments can be found on this website as well as Google Classroom.  To get to Google Classroom, students must log-into their school e-mail, go to the nine dots at the top right of the page and find "classroom".   They will also be emailed to the students. The assignments do not have to be completed all in one sitting. The students can complete them as it works in your schedule. Please feel free to contact me at The following schedule is a guideline as to how much time should be spent on distance learning per day.
