Hi, welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! My name is Ms. Bush and I am a teacher of students with autism at Featherstone Elementary. I earned my undergraduate degree in psychology and my masters in K-12 Special Education: Adapted Curriculum from the University of Mary Washington. I believe that every student can learn and can contribute important knowledge and skills in the classroom.
