Mrs. Denise Hankey
Hello!! I’m Denise Hankey & am the administrative assistant for Cowden & I have worked in the SPS district for 19 years. Having my family close is my greatest joy. My husband Les & I have two amazing daughters, Kate who is a principal in Alaska & Colby who is a pediatric nurse in Arkansas & the mom to my precious grandbabies Ava (4) & Ben (1) and wife to Jed. And last but definitely not least is my sweet boy Chip, our 6 year old Corgi 😊
Mrs. Amanda Pearson
I began my teaching career as a special education teacher here at Cowden. I have taught the functional skills classroom for 4 years, then became a second grade teacher. While I was a second grade teacher, I began working to become a school counselor. I wanted to be able to impact students on a deeper level. I graduated with my masters degree in 2021 and became the school counselor at Cowden!
Mrs. Leeann Rios
Hello! I am Nurse LeeAnn. This is my 11th year as a nurse, 16th in healthcare, and 3rd in the school district. My husband and I have 2 boys, 9yo and 16yo and 3 dogs. Some of my favorite things to do are go camping, reading, and crafting. I also love the color purple, the beach, and chex mix is my favorite snack. I can’t express enough how much I love Cowden and your kiddos. I wake up every day and look forward to seeing their smiling faces. Lets make 22-23 the best year yet!!!
