My name is Brian Burpee and I am the Physical Education Teacher for grades Preschool to Eighth. I graduated from Salem State University, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education and a Minor in Biology. I began teaching P.E. at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary School in 1993, and a year later began working at Sacred Heart of Jesus as well. While working at both schools I combined students from each school to form competitive basketball teams for grades 5th through 8th, and an intramural sports program. Two years ago both schools merged as Holy Family Academy. Since the merger I have been teaching Health for grades sixth to eighth. In the summer I direct a Basketball Camp and a Fun in the Sun Day Camp at Mount Wachusett Community College. During the past summer I also helped run the East Meets West Summer Camp hosted by Holy Family Academy. I live in Gardner with my wife and two boys who attend Holy Family Academy. In my free time I enjoy camping, playing basketball, softball and coaching my sons’ sports teams.
