About Me

Welcome to Kindergarten! I am excited to take this time to welcome you and your child to our Kindergarten family. My name is Heather Busenbark and this is my fourteenth year teaching school. I’m the mother of two girls: ages fourteen and fifteen. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Child and Family Studies. Then I earned my Master’s degree in Teaching K-8th Grade. I moved here ten years ago from Portland, Oregon and fell in love with all the sun! I am very excited to be teaching here in sunny Idaho.

While I was in college, I worked as an assistant in special education classrooms. I mostly worked with children with autism. I am so grateful for that experience. It has helped me to develop a great deal of patience and I learned many techniques that help all children.

I have taught first grade in Las Vegas and Portland for a total of five years. Then we moved here and I have taught Kindergarten, First, and Second grade in this district. I am glad to be in Kindergarten here at Skyway. I love Kindergarten and I am excited for our new year!
