Carrie Rush
Early Childhood Education Teacher

Hello Inspire Family! My name is Carrie Rush. I was born and raised in Littleton, Colorado with my parents and older sister (currently a music teacher in Littleton Public Schools). For college, I went to the University of Nebraska and received a degree in Child, Youth and Family Studies with a Minor in Psychology. After graduating, I went straight into my Master's program for Early Childhood Special Education. During this time, I worked as a Graduate Assistant at the University of Nebraska’s Lab School, which has a strong Reggio approach.

I moved back to Colorado and eventually joined DPS where I have been for four years. The last two years I spent as a Senior Team Lead, which allowed me to work alongside and coach other preschool teachers. I am very excited to jump back into the classroom and develop a strong Reggio preschool environment at Inspire. When I am not in the classroom, you can find me on stage doing Improv Comedy or hanging out with my cat (Kenja) and dog (Lemon).
