Martha Rush

MCEE Master Teacher

Martha Rush has taught at Mounds View High School for 20 years, and she currently teaches AP Micro, AP Macro and AP Psych. She has coached five teams to the finals of the National Economics Challenge, and her teams took first place in 2015 and 2017. She has an M.S. in Education Entrepreneurship from the University of Pennsylvania and an M.A. in History from the University of Minnesota. In addition to teaching, she runs professional development workshops and writes curriculum for MCEE, the College Board, and her own firm, NeverBore LLC. She writes a weekly blog on education issues at MarthaRush.org, and her book Beat Boredom: Engaging Tuned-Out Teenagers will be released by Stenhouse Publishing in November 2017. She loves seeing kids get hooked on economics -- especially when their knowledge surpasses hers. When she's not talking about econ or teaching, she likes to travel, swim, and sample craft beers.
