Burnett teaches advanced placement world history at the Oak Park school.
Burnett is taking part in the Jeopardy! Teachers Tournament.
Friday, students in Burnett's class also got a chance to play Jeopardy! A member of the show's Clue Crew came to town to help the students along.
Burnett is excited about the opportunity to show off his smarts on the popular game show. His students were just as excited to see him on TV as well.
Since Burnett won Friday's show, he'll be back next week to see if he can continue winning.
You can catch Jeopardy! Monday at 2:30 p.m. on ABC 7.
