It has been a wonderful 31 year journey as a teacher in the Mat-Su School District. I will be hanging up my baton this year as I retire. I would like to thank you all for the wonderful children you have sent my way and for the tremendous support I have felt from so many of you. Thanks for the memories of great programs, fiestas, band & choir involvements, and a thoroughly engaging career. I will miss you all but carry so many great thoughts of all of you!
P.S. I thought it appropriate for the second graders to be included in the Mother's Day songs since they missed their 1st grade spring program due to COVID.
Mrs. Bowen is a highly qualified elementary educator teaching music at Larson Elementary. This year will mark her 31st year working as a teacher in the Mat-Su School District. Mrs. Bowen is passionate about teaching music to children in grades K-5. She includes Spanish, another of her passions, into her music curriculum whenever the opportunity presents itself. Her room is accessed up the ramp in the middle of the upstairs hallway. She encourages 4th and 5th graders to participate in Band. Third, fourth, and fifth graders would normally be able to join Choir at Larson, but because of COVID guidelines - choir is suspended until further notice. Musical explorations have proven to be very exhilarating and rewarding to the participants. These explorations can bring a great deal of pleasure, as well as personal achievement. She was among the staff who helped to open Larson in 2001 and loves the warm, nurturing environment that continues to be generated at this school.
