My name is Mrs. Bowen and I am so excited to be joining the second grade team this year. I am anticipating a year of fun and lots of learning. I am also looking forward to learning more about all my students, but first let me tell you a little about me.



          I am a mom to two beautiful girls; Abby who is 7 and Julia who is 2. Being a mom is the most wonderful and most humbling job I have ever had. Trust me when I say, I understand where you are coming from. I received my BA and teaching credential from California State University- East Bay. I also earned a master’s degree in Teaching Leadership at St. Mary’s College. I have been working in Pittsburg, at Heights Elementary, since my 2nd year of teaching in 2004. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching students to read in first grade for 13 years and I look forward to expanding that learning in 2nd grade.


         There is so much to look forward to this year; we will learn so much. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me.
