Dawn Bush, Support Teacher

We are delighted to welcome Ms. Dawn Bush to our IST family as our new kindergarten support teacher; she is very excited to be working in an international, academic setting, using the PYP model of learning.

Coming from a family of educators, Ms. Bush was inspired by the many excellent teachers in her life to follow in their footsteps, and has worked with children in many different settings; such as day camp, church, and private childcare. Having fostered a love for caring for and nurturing children, becoming a teacher was a natural progression for her.

Ms. Bush’s work has taken her all over the US, including Missouri, New York, and Texas. She initially taught Spanish in Ft. Worth, Texas for a number of years before relocating to New York City, where she experienced a variety of teaching opportunities, including preschool, special education, and ESL education in an international school. During this time, Ms. Bush also trained in positive behavior support programs that emphasized social emotional learning (e.g. Second Step and Conscious Discipline), an area of study close to her heart – Ms. Bush believes every child can learn in a nurturing environment.

Ms. Bush studied at the University of North Texas, earning her BA in Spanish and Secondary Education. While in New York, Ms. Bush also earned her MS in Early Childhood Special Education, from Fordham University. Currently, she holds Texas teacher certification in Core Subjects (EC-6), ESL, and Special Education.
