2ND GRADE TEACHER / MATH AND SCIENCE
“Mrs. Busby, do you really love to teach?” “Of course! Why do you ask?” “You’re always so excited when you teach!”
It’s true. I get very excited when I teach, and I’m thrilled that it’s evident to my students! I want to make learning meaningful to them and get them excited about learning. Teaching is a second career. I first enjoyed a career in Human Resources where I spent much time in training and career counseling. I have a B.A. from the University of Albany and an M.A. in Education from Kean University. Part of my education stems from raising my own three children. I delighted in their excitement in early learning. I am intrigued by how they learn and study so differently from one another. From them, I know how important it is to differentiate instruction to ensure all students are engaged and motivated. How fortunate I am to be part of the CHP learning community where students delight me every day with their enthusiasm.

However, the rewards far outweighed the obstacles....
