Caity Burke, Social Media Manager

Caity Burke is a member of the 2023 class of Pleasant Valley, working as the Social Media Manager for the Spartan Shield. After school hours, you can find her working as a barista at Atomic Coffee Bar, or cheering on the sidelines at football games. Burke has been cheering since age 4 competitively, and now for our very own Spartans! Caity is a 3x All American Cheerleader, and is often recognized for her positive attitude and leadership at practices. She hopes to continue her cheerleading career in college, while studying forensic psychology at Arizona State University. Once her cheer shoes have become unlaced, Caity is typically diving into her favorite fictional books, painting for her AP art portfolio, or spending quality time with those she holds close. Caity loves the simple pleasures of sniffing candles, sitting in the rain, admiring flowers, watching the sunrise, and designing fashionable outfits. Ideally, she would like to spend her future exploring Europe with her dogs, but sitting back and watching The Notebook, or reading the Harry Potter series is cool too. Although Slytherins are known to be mischievous and cruel, Caitys peers would describe her as a bright and positive young girl, always flashing her smile. Perhaps she should retake the Hogwarts House quiz.
