One of her former students, Kennedy Jackson, says she nominated Bush because she's always willing to help.
"Before I came here i was struggling with math," says Kennedy. "Then she helped me even when she didn't have to."
This is Bush's second time winning the Hixson Ford Golden Apple Teacher of the Week Award. She says it's truly an honor to teach and to be appreciated by her students.
"My love for education, teaching, and my love for my students is what keeps me coming to work each day."
