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.

The Multiple Advantages of a Multilingual CurriculumThere have been a number of studies in recent years that suggest people who speak more than one language are in fact more intelligent. An article written by the New York Times highlights that learning multiple languages could improve cognitive skills beyond those related to language, which is a considerably different viewpoint than previously thought.
