Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Jessica Bower
This is my 14th year teaching 7th grade Language Arts at Chapin Middle School. I am excited to also be teaching 7th and 8th grade Literacy Lab this year! I have a BA in English from the University of Georgia and a Masters of Education in Language and Literacy from the University of South Carolina. I hold teaching certification in Middle Level Language Arts and in Literacy along with Gifted and Talented and Read to Succeed Reading Teacher endorsements. I attained National Board Certification in English Language Arts in 2012. In addition to teaching, I serve as the ELA department co-chair and sponsor the Creative Writing Club.
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy traveling, watching and playing tennis, cooking, spending time with my family, and--of course--reading!
