    Hello! My name is Mr. Pushic and I am the Title 1 Math Intervention teacher here at Opequon Elementary. I am originally from Pittsburgh, PA and moved down to Martinsburg during the 2020-21 school year. I have my undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education and Special Education and my master's degree in Literacy, but I have a lot of experience in teaching mathematics in the 6 years that I have been teaching. For fun, I like to take walks and watch movies, I’m a big fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
