Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Jessica Bower

This is my 16th year teaching at Chapin Middle School where I teach Language Arts and Literacy Lab.  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 sponsor the Creative Writing Club and co-sponsor of our Mock Trial team.

When I'm not teaching, I enjoy traveling, watching and playing tennis, cooking, spending time with my family, and--of course--reading!
