Hello, and welcome to the wonderful, wacky world of junior high. This is a hugely impactful time in your student's life, and I am energized and honored to be a part of it. Junior high students are at such a transformative age; they are beginning to formulate their own beliefs, see life's shades of gray, and decide who they want to become. I prayerfully approach each day, asking the Lord to help me patiently guide my students. Undoubtedly, there are times I fail, but I will continue to give my utmost to create a happy, healthy place for us to learn together.
The parent/teacher partnership is critical to a student's education and growing walk with Jesus. I welcome parental words of wisdom and student feedback. Please don't hesitate to contact me over any need or questions that may arise. Together, let us pray and work toward developing a teenager that will "Love the Lord with all their heart, soul, strength and mind" (Matthew 22:37).
In His Service,
A Little About Me:
I graduated from Walla Walla College with a B.S. in education, and a marriage proposal from my BFF, Ken Busby. Who says college tuition isn't worth the money?
After teaching in Adventist schools for seven years, I chose to stay at home to home-school my own three children for a few years. These were some of my happiest memories, yet I also longed to be in the classroom again. The 2022-2023 school year will be my 11th at Rogers School. I am thankful for the opportunity to spend my days with my favorite, fun-loving 7th and 8th graders. It doesn't get much better than this!
As the oldest of eight children, and a mother to four, I don't find much time for my own hobbies; however, I enjoy reading, home decorating, pinning to my Pinterest boards, snow-skiing, and Bible study.
I look forward to working with you this next school year.
Mrs. Toni Busby
