Welcome to Ms. Bourisaw’s page!  This is my thirteenth year teaching 4th grade at Meridian Elementary School.  I taught seven years in Decatur Public Schools as well (2nd, 4th, 5th, and 8th grades).  I am a life-long resident of Blue Mound and attended BMGS (Blue Mound Grade School) and graduated from BMHS (Blue Mound High School).  I graduated from Millikin University and also attended Western Illinois University.  I have two sons:  Tanner is a Senior at Columbia College where he studies business and plays lacrosse; Trey is a Senior at MHS where he plays soccer and baseball.   My hobbies include watching my sons play sports, traveling, boating, and watching the St. Louis Cardinals!  I love teaching 4th Grade and I am excited to have a great year!
