Hola! My name is Daniel Bussinger, but most people just call me Mr. Bus. I have been teaching Spanish in various capacities since 2000. I got my start just like many of you, by taking high school Spanish 1 and 2. Armed with my high school Spanish, I made friends with Spanish speakers at work and soon improved my fluency dramatically. I was encouraged because I found that I could make a lot of grammatical mistakes but still get my point across, and the native speakers were very nonjudgmental. I went on to travel all over Mexico and then to major in Spanish at UCSC. After years of being a carpenter and teaching nights at Sierra College, I was fortunate to land at Nevada Joint Union High School District in 2011.
