Welcome to 1st Grade!

 Hello! I am Miss Bucy, the first grade teacher at St. Pius X. This is my fourth year of teaching, but my second year at St. Pius X. I attended St. Monica Catholic School on Mercer Island from kindergarten through eighth grade. I had such a wonderful experience there and the teachers were so inspiring, I decided to become a teacher so I can help children the same way my teachers helped me. I earned my Bachelor's of Arts in Education at Central Washington University in Ellensburg, WA. When I am not teaching, I love to travel, read, go hiking, go camping, and spend time with my family.

My goal as a teacher is to help my students learn about the world around them and to help them see how they can change the world. I strive to help my students be the best students, people, and Christians that they can be. I look forward to working with them this year and I cannot wait to see how much they grow!

If you ever have any questions or concerns, you can email me at sbucy@stpx.org!
