God blessed Mrs. Bowen with a true love and passion for teaching children. She has been blessed to teach for 40 amazing years. After retiring from the Lincoln County Public School System with 30 years of teaching, God led Mrs. Bowen to GCA where she could continue her dream. She has taught at GCA for ten years.
Mrs. Bowen received a B.A. in Elementary Education and a Reading Certification from Western Carolina University. She received her Masters in Elementary Education from Winthrop University. During her teaching career Mrs. Bowen has taught kindergarten through third grade. Mrs. Bowen and her husband Tommy have four awesome sons; Brandon, Josh, Cole, and Brett, and a daughter-in-law named Taylor. They are active members of Mt. Zion United Methodist Church in Cornelius, where Mrs. Bowen and her family have been members for 35 years. Mrs. Bowen is very enthusiastic and excited about the coming year. She can’t wait to provide a fun, active-learning, spiritually filled classroom for all of her students.
Mrs. Bowen considers it a joy to have taught at Grace the last six years. She loves seeing her students grow academically, socially, physically, and most importantly, spiritually.
