Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Jessica Bower

This is my 15th year teaching 7th grade Language Arts at Chapin Middle School.  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!
