Wayan Buschman

Humanities Teacher, Dorm Head

Wayan (pronounced “why-ON”) was born and raised in New York City, a place she thought unmatchable in height and grandeur until she visited Leadville, Colorado. There, at age 16, she attended the High Mountain Institute where she fell in love with both the semester school model and the Rockies. It follows that she enrolled at Colorado College. After graduating with a degree in English literature, she returned to the High Mountain Institute, this time as the English teaching apprentice. Now, Wayan is thrilled to teach humanities at Oxbow. She hopes to share with students her love for books as art pieces, cultural items, and vessels for our own stories and those of others.
