A Great Time to Teach


My name is Ms. Alva S. Bussey, I am a Special Education Teacher, and I was born to teach. I have taught students with various disabilities from those with a severe disability to those with specific learning disabilities; therefore, I have the repertoire of learning strategies available for students with a disability. I have a Reading Endorsement which equips me with the latest research-based strategies. I have a Bachelor of Science in Special Education and a Masters of Education. I take educating students seriously to alleviate poverty and to create productive adults contributing to our society. I hold students accountable for their actions, and I expect them to have high expectations for themselves as I have of them. 

My philosophy is: It is not a crime to be poor in America; it is a crime to remain poor in America, and with education and teamwork, poverty can be greatly decreased.
