Hi! My name is Lydia Bussey, and I am one of the special educators here at EMES! graduated from the College of Charleston in December of 2019 with a B.S. in Special Education: K-12 with specializations in intellectual disabilities and emotional disabilities. Prior to being here at EMES, I worked as an Instructional Assistant at Prices Fork Elementary School. 

I was born and raised in Abingdon, VA, and moved to South Carolina after high school to compete for the College of Charleston's track and field team. While in Charleston, I met and worked with amazing professors who are blazing new trails in the field of special education, and I am grateful for everything they taught me. I returned to Virginia to be closer to loved ones, and I am so happy to be back home in the mountains. I look forward to meeting you!
