Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Miss Bowers and I am excited to teach your student at Farragut Elementary! 2nd grade is an awesome year where kids learn powerful skills that take them into the upper elementary grades. They learn to be so independent this year and they read chapter books and learn math that they will use for the rest of their lives. I want to welcome parents into this learning experience and I recommend reading with your children as much as you can. My classroom library is always available if you need some fun and interesting book recommendations. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns with a phone call or an email.
A little bit about me is that I have a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education through Greenville University. I am currently working on a Reading Specialist certification through UMSL and am enjoying the opportunity to apply what I am learning to be a better teacher for my students. I am originally from Maryland but have chosen to live and work in St. Louis. My favorite book is Beauty by Robin McKinley and my favorite food is ice cream. I look forward to teaching your children and supporting them as they learn to succeed!
