My name is Ms. Sowers, and I am your Copper Creek Counselor. I am so excited to be joining the staff at Copper Creek this year. I am a licensed professional counselor as well as being a certified masters level teacher. I practiced counseling for 10 years, performing home-based counseling for children and families as well as being the program manager and counselor in a group home for youth. I have been a teacher for 26 years, working with 6th, 5th, 3rd, and 1st grades. I am excited to be returning to counseling where I will be able to work with students of all ages.
I have 3 children, Jason, Tiffany, and Brittany and 7 grandchildren. My grandkids call me Nana. My son Jason is an architect, and lives here in Phoenix with his wife Arian and their 2 children Cora Kimberly(10/2/2016), Westley(10/13/2018). Cora loves books, swimming, dancing and playing princess. Westley loves trains, building towers, the Mandalorian, and hanging out with Daddy (especially when they go fishing)! Tiffany lived in London for about 5 years and now lives in Portland, with her husband, Nico, who is French and speaks 4 different languages. They love to travel and visit friends and family both in Europe and the United States. Tiffany and Nico have a daughter, Eloise Rose(11/8/2019). Eloise is learning both English and French and loves playing with friends at preschool. Brittany is a stay at home mom who currently lives in Germany, with her husband, Ryan. She loves to bake, sew, build furniture and create amazing, detailed projects. Ryan is a Ranger in Army Special Forces. He is a HALO instructor who teaches soldiers to jump out of airplanes. Brittany and Ryan have four boys now: Bradlee(11/28/2007, Taylor(6/3/2011), Matthew(6/26/2013)and new baby Jack(1/10/2020). Bradlee is in eighth grade this year, and he is a fantastic big brother. He loves music, sports, Legos, and video games and books! Taylor is in fifth grade this year. Taylor loves Science, cooking, Legos, and books. Matthew is in third grade this year. He loves all kinds of animals, bugs, Legos, books, and helping with Jack. Baby Jack was born at only 31 weeks, but he doesn't look like a premie anymore. He loves running around after his big brothers and trying to do whatever they do.
Some of my hobbies include traveling, dancing, singing, yoga, baking, gardening, reading, SUNS games, and live concerts or theater performances. I enjoy drinking coffee, sitting on my patio and watching the hummingbirds. (I also keep a lookout for squirrels, pack rats, rabbits and raccoons who like to snack in my garden.) I am anxious to meet you and learn all about the things you are interested in. I know that we will have a great year!
