Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Mrs. VanBuskirk's Math Class. I am super excited to join the team here at Houston Middle School. I have been teaching 5th grade at Big Lake Elementary for the past three years and have always planned on returning to Houston, only now I will be the teacher and not the student. I am looking forward to an amazing year of fun and learning.
A Little Bit About Me...
I grew up in the Valley and graduated from Houston High School in 2001. I attended the University of Alaska Anchorage and graduated with my BA in 2007. I began my professional career in the advertising and public relations industry, but quickly realized that it was not for me. A few years after we started our family, I took the leap and sought out a way to fulfill my dream of becoming a teacher. Even though I began my teaching career later in life, it was easy to tell that this is my passion. I love working with kids and seeing them grow.
