Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Dawn Buskey
I am so excited to help open Lightridge High School in the fall of 2020! I’ve been teaching in Loudoun County for 6 years so far, 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 and hanging out with my family, friends, and pets. My husband is also a teacher at John Champe HS, and our “Buskey Bunch” includes 4 kids, 2 dogs, and 2 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 movie is The Princess Bride, my favorite food is Maryland blue crab, and my favorite morning drink is a caramel latte.
