Hello! I would like to introduce myself: I am Lori Rush, and I have been given the privilege of teaching your child this year in 2nd grade.
A little about me...
I have been teaching 3rd grade for nearly 25 years - 2nd grade is going to be a new adventure for me! I am excited to start my new adventure with your child!
I grew up in northwest Iowa and moved to Missouri after finishing college. I received my undergraduate degree from Morningside College in Sioux City, IA, my masters from Baker University, and am currently working on my Elementary Math Specialist degree.
I have 2 children of my own, Cole, 24, and Christopher, 20. Cole works for law enforcement and Christopher will be starting his junior year at UMKC this fall. My husband, Corey, is a heavy equipment operator and works for KR Excavating.
As I said before, I have been given the privilege of teaching your child this year. My goal is to motivate, nurture, guide, and to challenge all students to reach their maximum potential. My classroom environment will be a place that your child looks forward to every day: a place that makes them feel important, a place that makes them excited to learn, and a place where they are cared for, respected, and treated fairly. Thank you for letting me teach your child this year in 2nd grade!
