Mrs. Huesz is excited to be part of the English team at River Bend Middle School. Originally from Illinois, she attended Illinois Wesleyan University, where she earned a BFA in Theatre. She then went on to receive her MFA in Acting from the University of South Carolina, where she met her husband, Jim--a Park View High School graduate! After completing a fellowship with The Shakespeare Theatre at the Folger, and working for a brief time in the theatre, her career took a few twists and turns which led to her finding her passion for teaching and obtaining her Masters in Education from James Madison University. Prior to joining River Bend, she taught for ten years in Frederick County Virginia, teaching in alternative high school and school programs as well as serving as the literacy coach in juvenile detention.
A Google Certified Educator, Mrs. Huesz is dedicated to being a lifelong learner, and loves learning new technology tidbits! When not at school, she enjoys traveling, reading, listening to audiobooks, and cooking! She spends most of her free time hanging out with her husband and teenage daughter, Isabella!
