Welcome to the Palermo Elementary Grade 4. My name is Michelle Bush. I have had the pleasure of teaching in the Mexico School district since 1988. I have a background in elementary education K-6 and a literacy masters from SUNY Oswego. I have had various experiences in all grade levels and have recently taught first grade and incorporated my Literacy degree with early learners. This coming year I will be teaching 4th grade. These past few years my classroom has developed the Blended Learning philosophy. I enjoy teaching with a creative flair and enjoy an "Active Participation/ Inclusive" model. I enjoy all sports and outdoor activities. I see parents as the core to raising well-rounded learners and citizens.
