Music that Describes Brittany

Brittany Bush was nominated by an anonymous colleague.

Ms. Bush motivates her students and colleagues. Her journey to become an educator was not traditional. She majored in computer technology at LSU, but soon realized that she was not happy with her career choice.  She became a teacher through alternative certification. No one would know that teaching wasn't her first choice based upon her dedication to her students and her colleagues.

Within the district, she serves as a teacher leader. She works with fellow teachers to help implement curriculum.  Ms. Bush has also worked with Louisiana's Department of Education to provide feed back on teacher training and curriculum.

In the classroom, she motivates her students to be the best and brightest. She teaches them more than the standards and curriculum. Her students leave her with skills that will carry them throughout their lives. She helped to establish a STEM club for the students.  Recently, her students participated in a competition to build a moon base using Legos. Through this activity, her students were exposed to opportunities they may have otherwise missed out upon if she was not their teacher. Her students also excelled on Louisiana's LEAP 2025 assessment. A number of her students performed at the mastery and advanced level.  

Ms. Bush fosters a sense of family with her colleagues and students.  She is active with both students and colleagues outside of school hours.  She is the teacher that attends her students' games and non-school related events. Ms. Bush has a genuine love for the profession and what it entails.

"I admire her and hope to be as great of a teacher as she is.  She is a LifeChanger for all of her students. She leads, she motivates, and she loves," said her nominator.

Ms. Bush is so much more than just an awesome teacher. She goes over and beyond to make her students motivated and confident. Her students are her top priority. She exposes them to things that they wouldn't get a chance to see outside of the school. I have had the privilege of working on the same grade level as her for two year and it has been the most rewarding experience ever. I don't think she knows it, but I look up to her, and love to learn new things from her each day. She puts the T in TEAM!!!! She is willing to give you the shirt off her back. I have learned so many things from her as a teacher. I am excited to see what she will do next because everything she does is amazing. She truly deserves to be recognized for all she does for our school and the community.

I'm so proud of Brittany. I've visited her classroom multiple times and seeing the delight on those kids faces is inspiring. Kids with limited opportunities are seeing limitless potential. Third graders love telling how they programmed a robot or made their own arcade games out of cardboard. The way she integrates disciplines in one topic is amazing.
