Welcome to ML
We are so happy to work with your students this year. This is a little about us.
Estamos muy contentas trabajar con su estudiante este año. Esto es un poquito de nosotras.
This is my 18th year in the district teaching Second Language Learners. Before joining the Sandburg family, I taught second language learners at Lincoln Elementary. I have a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction as well as in Reading. My Puerto Rican heritage helps me to communicate with those of Spanish backgrounds. When I am not teaching, I enjoy traveling, reading and everything outdoors. I have been married for over 33 years to my wonderful husband, Bill. Our son Preston is a Civil Engineer and our daughter Amanda works in marketing. I am very proud of my family. I look forward to a year of growth for both myself and your children.
Hello! My name is Annie Bush, and this will be my fifth year teaching. For the last four years, I taught 2nd and 3rd grade in Seattle, WA. While teaching for a linguistically diverse population in Seattle, I realized my passion for supporting multilingual learners. I pursued a year-long ELL endorsement program through Seattle University. I am thrilled to be serving Sandburg students! It is all the more special because I attended Sandburg as a student in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Go Roadrunners! I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Spanish from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I earned my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Western Governors University. My husband and I moved back to Wheaton this summer to be closer to family. Our corgi-aussie mix, Skye, loves living here too!

This is my seventh year in education. I was a permanent sub at Hawthorne School for 4 years and was a TA at Washington School last year. I have a BA in Literature and Secondary Education from Wheaton College and my ESL Endorsement from the University of St. Francis. I have 4 kids who have all gone through District 200 (one is still at Wheaton North). I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, and love to travel with my husband and kids, especially road trips and hiking in the mountains. I love working with elementary students and am excited to be at Sandburg Schools this year!
