Brief Biography: Mrs. Owens explains her interest in teaching: “I fell in love with teaching rather by accident while tutoring others who simply needed help. Seeing people feel accomplished when they understood something after having struggled with it was incredibly rewarding. I realized that each time I helped someone else learn, I was learning too. These tutoring experiences led me into teaching, and I have loved it ever since!”

Mrs. Owens is originally from Wisconsin, and will forever be a Green Bay Packers fan. While in college, she had the privilege of taking an internship with the Walt Disney Company and both lived in and worked in Disney World for a semester. Now residing in Pennsylvania, she enjoys visiting her former homes of Wisconsin and Disney as often as possible.
