MEET OUR CEO/Head of School
I am so excited to welcome you to Burbrella LLC. I am honored to be living my dream as an everyday reality. I founded Burbrella LLC as an umbrella organization that combines my love, passion and dedication to education. I have taught grades prekindergarten to grade 5 and learned so much during my teaching career. I am passionate about all things curriculum and instruction and have served as an instructional leader for the last 6 years of my educational journey. Burbrella Learning Academy was created during a global pandemic when many families were seeking support and guidance towards continuing and enhancing learning for their children.
I am a mom of two amazing boys that I homeschool who are 7 and 5 years old. I currently hold a BA in Psychology, M.S. Ed in Early Childhood Education, M.S. Ed in Curriculum & Instruction and a MA in School Administration. I am a licensed K-6 teacher in 3 states and a licensed School Administrator as well.
Chief Financial Officer/ Burbrella Online
Hi! I am from Spartanburg, SC. I went to Broome High School. What I enjoy most about supporting online education is the encouragement to learn and study anywhere you can imagine, rather than the traditional thought of learning can only be done within a classroom. My hobbies are reading, event planning, and journaling. Fun fact about myself is I like to prepare and bake desserts
Project Man./Talent Req./Burbrella Online
Hi! I am from Texas and graduated from Texas A&M University- San Antonio with a degree in both Psychology and Sociology. Education is very important to me as I grew up on a side of town where education was not always a priority. I fell in love with reading while in daycare and never stopped wanting to learn new things. I love being creative and dealing with problems through a solution-focused approach. I love to bake, cook, and work with my hands. I love to create new things and make people happy. When I was 20 years old I attempted to become a hip hop artist in my city, and although I did not become famous, I still believe my music had powerful messages about being yourself and knowing who you are. Yes, the music is still on the internet.

Early Childhood/History Academy Teacher
Greetings, my name is Ms. Vanita Wells! Prior to devoting my time as a stay at home mom, I spent 13 years studying Early Childhood Education and teaching early learners. Preschool and kindergarten-age children have truly captured my focus and style of teaching. Watching them learn and discover something new about the world has been rewarding; which has driven my goal of helping my students develop a passion for learning.I believe that virtual learning is a great resource for families because children are exposed to subjects that may not be taught in a traditional classroom. My style of teaching promotes active engagement, child-centered learning, and all around fun! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my children! We enjoy baking and cooking together; especially experimenting with new recipes. My family and I also enjoy taking our daily walk, staying active is very important to me.
