Ms. Buster

  • Ms. Buster Hello families!

    My name is Mrs. Buster and this is my third year at Global Arts Plus. Before teaching kindergarten at Global Arts, I taught for 5 years at Cherokee Heights and 4 years at Obama Elementary. This is my 12th year teaching Kindergarten! I love teaching our littlest learners. I love seeing how kids grow and change over the year and seeing all of the great friends that they make along the way.

    A little about me, I have a two year old son (Theo) and a dog (George) and another on the way! They keep me pretty busy running around the house. I also love to be outside, run marathons, and read. 

    Kindergarten is a big developmental year. It is not just about learning abc's and 123's but it is also about learning how to get along with other children, how to resolve conflicts, how to take turns and how to show empathy to others. I believe if your child learns how to be part of a group, your child will learn and grow academically. I feel strongly that by working closely with parents, we can help your child have an amazing kindergarten experience!!
