Mrs. Dawn Buskey

I love working at Lightridge! I’ve been teaching in Loudoun County for several years, having moved to NOVA in 2011 from western NY, although I grew up in northern NJ. I love teaching high school students and I love science. I have taught students in grades 7-12 in every science content except physics. When I’m not working, I love spending time outdoors, watching movies, and hanging out with my family, friends, and pets. My husband teaches at Lightridge too, and our “Buskey Bunch” includes 4 kids and multiple dogs and cats. My happy place is on a beach at sunset, but I also like camping and hiking in the woods. I like to try new foods, and sometimes ask my server to surprise me when I eat out. My favorite food is Maryland blue crab, I love coffee, and my favorite thing to watch is Hamilton The Musical. I sponsor the Envirothon Team and Environmental Science Club at Lightridge, and we're always looking for more people, so come join us!
