Ms. Linda Bush
I was born and raised in Southern California. I attended the University of San Diego graduating with a BA in English and a minor in Business Administration. I attended Chapman Univeristy where I completed the single subject teaching program and began student teaching at Garden Grove High School. I then went on to teach at GGHS for 16 years, teaching all levels of English, including AP English Language and AP English Literature Composition courses. For several summers, I also taught English literature and composition classes at Leysin American School in the beautiful Swiss Alps. Having been bitten by the international teaching bug, I went on to teach for three years at Uskudar American Academy in Istanbul, Turkey - a prestigious private Turkish high school. Now, I call Valdez home. I teach English II, English IV, Oral Communications, and the 12th-grade college writing course in partnership with Prince William Sound College.
