My Students

Going through a system that sometimes seems to fail you is discouraging. I've watched my students struggle with answering questions out of the fear of being humiliated, act out from not understanding, and crumble from confusion. I want to make my students feel heard, seen, and understood. The glow on their face when the lightbulb goes off is what I live for. When that connection is made they would always ask, "Mrs. Bush, can we do a classroom 'clap clap woop woop'," and we would celebrate those accomplishments together! My students know my passion for community, and knowing they have support from peers and their teacher inspires them all to aim for academic achievement that they never thought was possible! Hearing things like, "Mrs. Bush I'm going to remember you forever", makes me realize that I have impacted them just as much as they have impacted my life. Isn't that what it's all about?

My Project

Math and Literacy are the most important areas for building an educational foundation. These supplies will allow students to create their own stories, understand math and literacy more efficiently, and seem themselves as the future leaders I know they are!

In order to achieve this, I need to create a space that sparks imagination, inspires creativity, builds a collective community, and motivates mastery of skills!

Math and literacy are possibly the most important elements to a strong educational foundation. Students will use manipulatives during our math sessions to grasp the concept of numbers and grouping them. On this list are word charts and phonics games. These items allow students to find fun in words, understand how they are created with the breakdown of its parts, and enhance their vocabulary. Other supplies like pencils, markers, folders, pencil sharpeners, paper, etc., are needed to provide all of my students with an equal opportunity for success.

Students who are engaged and encouraged in the classroom are guaranteed to shoot for the stars in their educational journey. As a first year teacher, I am determined to give my students an academic experience they will never forget!
