Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. McGowan

I am originally from Grandville, Michigan.  I graduated from Grand Valley State University with my Bachelor's in Language Arts/Elementary Education. In 2007 I moved here and began teaching in the Washington School District.  I have taught first, second, third, fourth, sixth, and seventh grade! I became highly qualified to teach Middle School Mathematics three years ago.  This is my sixth year in the Deer Valley District and I am very excited to be teaching seventh grade again!
When I am at home, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our children.  I have an 18 year old step daughter who is attending U of A in the Fall, an 11 year old boy, and an 8 year old little boy.  My hobbies include reading, cooking, traveling, camping, and theater.  I am a proud baseball, basketball, and flag-football mom, so you may run into me at the community park!
