Kelly Burleson

Kelly Burleson has been teaching science all over the world since 2003. With stops in New York City, Texas, and South Carolina, she got the opportunity of a lifetime in 2015 to move with her husband and two children to Malaysia and teach Chemistry and AP Chemistry at an international school. 

Her goal is to provide students with the resources and instruction they need to be successful in science, even when they don’t consider themselves to be strong science students.  She works hard to combine rigor and fun and create an environment where students are challenged and encouraged.
