Your Teacher Assistant
Hello, my name is Deana Jowers. I am really excited to welcome all of our new K5 heroes this year! This will be my eleventh year as a kindergarten assistant with Mrs. Williams...we make a great team. I have been married for 32 years to my wonderful husband Greg who works at Hanners’ State Farm Insurance. We have three incredible children. Our oldest Anna (23) received her degree in accounting from USC. She currently works for an Accounting firm in Charleston, in the auditing dept. and she is studying for her CPA. Our son Bryce (20) is a junior at USC, studying Criminal Justice. Our youngest daughter Avery (19) is a sophomore at Trident Technical College in Charleston, and has just chosen to change her major to Education! We also have a 11 year old black Labrador named Deuce, who loves to swim in the lake, and then snore contently ;)). We have lived in the Chapin/Irmo area for sixteen years. I cannot wait for another great year here at Harbison West working with our new heroes! You will be amazed at how much your children learn, grow, and become readers this year! Kindergarten is an amazing time!!!
