Meet Your 2019-2020 PTO Board:

Virginia Steffens, PTO President

I am Virginia Steffens and I'm super excited to be Bush Elementary's PTO President for the 2019-2020 school year.  My family and I moved to Missouri from the state of California in 2016 and love the small town of Fulton.  We have lots of animals: 4 dogs, 4 cats, 1 cow and 1 miniature donkey.  I have 2 children that go to Bush Elementary.  My daughter is in 2nd grade and my son in in 4th.  I've been apart of the Bush PTO for 3 years now.


Liz Schwab, PTO Vice President

Hi, I'm Liz Schwab!  I've been teaching in education for 9 years.  I joined the Fulton High School staff 4 years ago.  I teach freshman science and Jr/Sr Genetics.  I am also the Head Girls tennis coach and Prom sponsor at FHS.  I've been married to my husband Tyler for 7 years and we have two girls.  Harper is a Kindergartner at Bush this year in Mrs. Lane's classroom and Brooklyn is at FECC in Miss Wilkerson's classroom.  We love outdoor events and spending time with family and friends.  I'm very excited to be a part of the Bush PTO as vice president.


Michelle Kemp, Treasurer

Michelle Kemp is the 2019-2020 PTO Treasurer and is serving as the Book Fair chairperson for her 5th year.  She is the mother of Dylan (2nd grade) and Jayla (Fulton Middle School).  Michelle is married to Jason.  In addition to her work with the PTO, Michelle is actively involved in leadership roles within her church and also coordinates fundraisers to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a disease that effects both of her children.


Chelsea Burfield, Secretary

Hi, my name is Chelsea Burfield.  I have two kids Cara and Caden at Bush Elementary and Max is at FECC.  I currently work at FMS but prior to that I was the Bush Elementary Counselor for four years.  I am excited to join our Bush Family's PTO!


Lacy Waters, Parliamentarian 

My name is Lacy Waters and I am so excited to be part of the Bush PTO.  This is my 4th year at Bush Elementary but my 13th year in education.  I have 2 daughters.  My oldest is 5 years old and is in kindergarten at Bush.  My youngest daughter is one and attends daycare at FECC.  MY husband is Ryan Waters who is the athletic director at Fulton High School.  We have been married for 9 years, together 15.  I also have one pug dog Marley and one cat Dollie.  In my spare time I love to spend time with family and friends.  I also like to watch movices, travel, bake cupcakes, scrapbooks, shop, go camping, and hang out on the lake.  We have exciting things in store this year for PTO and I'm ready to get started!
