We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. Jeannita Bussle and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dr. Jeannita, what are you inspired by?
I am inspired by my two children. Telling my story was truly for them. My story is also their story. I wanted them to have my words long after I am gone.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I have been a public school educator for sixteen years. My expertise includes STEM education, socio-emotional learning, and college and career readiness. My journey has not been easy. I tragically became a widow almost four years ago, therefore, I was forced to raise my two young children alone. During this same time I was enrolled in a doctorate program. I am unapologetic in my belief that my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ kept my mind sane and gave me the strength to finish. I would like the world to know that with faith and a strong support system you can overcome anything.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my best friend were visiting from Detroit, the downtown Dallas / uptown area would certainly be my go to for entertainment. We both love fine dining and uptown never disappoints. As a creative, Deep Ellum would also be a must. They have a fabulous wine walk that allows participants to explore art galleries and cute boutiques in the area.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I dedicate this shoutout to my mother; Toni Clark. She has literally been my rock. We have been through so much together. If it were not for her and God’s grace I would not be were I am.
