Mrs. Rush

Middle School Language Arts B.S. in English, Towson University Masters in Reading Development, Loyola University Teaching at St. Ursula School since 1996 (with time off to raise a family)

Teaching middle school is a wonderful experience! It is a privilege to be able to touch so many young minds and introduce them to the fascinating world of literature! Although they may not all share the same passion I do, it is my goal to try and enhance their appreciation for the language arts. Each year brings a new set of personalities and I enjoy getting the chance to know each and every one!
