John Marshall Science Teacher Alexa Bushovisky Honored by West Virginia Academy of Science

The Dr. John Warner Outstanding Teacher Award for contributions to science education and mentorship of future scientists has been awarded to John Marshall High School science teacher Alexa Bushovisky by the West Virginia Academy of Science.

She was chosen based on her dedication to her students and her classroom, the rigor of her classes and for her extracurricular activities at John Marshall High School. Bushovisky’s accomplishments and hard work were noted on the nomination form submitted by a colleague.

The Monarchs Science teacher didn’t know she was being considered for the award but is proud to be honored for her work.

“My reaction was complete and utter surprise,” Bushovisky said. “I had no idea. I was in shock. I teared up. I was just completely flabbergasted.”

Bushovisky was recognized during an awards ceremony at the academy’s annual meeting held March 30 at the West Liberty University Highlands Center. She received both a plaque and a cash award.

This accolade is the longest standing annual award for science educators in the state of West Virginia.
