Mrs. Bushman's Kindergarten Class

Getting to know Mrs. Bushman...

A Little About Me

This will be my 8th year teaching kindergarten in Baltimore County and my 5th year teaching kindergarten at Hillcrest Elementary. I graduated from Belmont University in Nashville, TN with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration. I then decided I wanted to go back to school to earn my teaching degree. Shortly thereafter, I moved from Nashville to the Baltimore area and earned a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

I currently live in Ellicott City with my husband, Matt, our 7 month old daughter, Elyse, and our Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Mosby. Matt is a project manager for an event management company based out of Rockville. We are absolutely loving being new parents to our sweet baby girl. Every day is new and exciting! She is getting really good at army crawling on the floor and is so close to actually crawling on her hands and knees! She is such a joy in our lives!

I am originally from just outside Nashville, TN and my immediate family still lives there. Being from Nashville, music has played a huge part of my life and still does. I love all kinds of music and enjoy going to concerts with my friends and family! I love the Fall season and I LOVE football!! Deep down I'm a Tennessee TItans fan at heart! However, my husband is actually a Philadelphia Eagles fan so the one team we've come to agree on is the Ravens. You will definitely see me wearing Ravens shirts on purple Fridays (unless they're playing the Titans, which I'm pretty sure they aren't this year)!

I'd like to welcome you all to what is sure to be a sensational kindergarten year! I absolutely LOVE teaching kindergarten! It is a year of so much learning and excitement for what's to come! I look forward to instilling a love of learning and a sense of enjoyment that will stay with each child through their educational career! Let's have a great year!
