Biography

Greetings, my name is Jarrell Bussey, and I am a first year P.E teacher here at Summit Christian Academy. A long time ago, and in a galaxy far far away, I was born in Royal Oak, Michigan. I lived in Michigan for the majority of my life, and after I graduated from Wayne State University, I moved to Texas in 2011. Initially I moved to Texas to pursue ministry school, but I ended up attending a ministry school in Oklahoma for two years. My years of state switching came to a conclusion, after I graduated from Victory Bible College in Oklahoma in 2014, and decided to move back to Texas. In Texas, I was able to finish my bachelor degree requirements from my undergraduate school. I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in 2016. I had my degree, yet I was a few years withdrawn from my field of study in college. I was seeking options to explore with my newly acquired degree. My mother recommended that I pursue teaching. And for a rather rare occasion in my life, I decided to listen to her. In 2016, I signed up for Texas Teachers. I decided that I wanted to teach physical education, due to the fact that health and fitness were a huge part of my life. I was excited at the notion of being able to teach what I was passionate about to the students. I passed the content exam for P.E in 2017, and became certified to teach P.E. In 2019, I was offered my first education position at an elementary school. In the same month, I also became a junior league soccer coach for i9 sports. The position at Camacho Elementary , was a Special Education Instructional Aide for SCSS. It was in a position that wasn’t related to what I was pursuing to teach, but two months later, it opened the door to the position that I was seeking. I became a Physical Education instructional aide in late 2019 at Deer Creek Elementary, and gained valuable experience in my time of being one.
