Dear Bowen Elementary Families,
It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new Principal of Bowen Elementary. I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. On a personal note, my husband and I are proud parents of a precious baby girl that was born in March of this year. She brings me such joy and keeps me very busy.
On a professional note, I am beginning my eighth year in the field of education and my first year as a principal. I have spent the past seven years as an elementary classroom teacher where I taught second grade, third grade, and worked with all grades kindergarten through fifth as a Title One teacher.
I am a 2005 graduate of Powell County High School. I finished my degree in Elementary Education in 2009 and my degree in Educational Administration in 2012. I achieved the status as a National Board Certified Teacher in 2014.
I could not be more excited to be joining the Bowen team and I can’t wait to get this school year started. Our back to school theme this year is “Bowen-We’re a GREAT Team!” I look forward to working as a team with you (the families), the BES staff, and community.
As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors—teachers, students and parents—are excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun and nurturing environment. Please feel free to call the school anytime you have questions or concerns. If I am not available I will be happy to return your call as soon as possible.
