Hello Cowden Cougars! Although I’ve been in the Springfield Public School district for 15 years, this is my second year at Cowden. My husband Les & I have two daughters and brand new granddaughter! I am excited for the future here at Cowden!!
Ms. Theresa Breshears
I’m Theresa Breshears, your new school counselor. This is my 5th year with SPS and I’m very excited to join the Cowden family. I’m from Springfield and graduated from MSU. My spouse and I have two children, two dogs and one cat. I love to read, be outdoors and spend time with my family. I will be in your child’s classroom every other week. Please let me if I can help in any other way. I’m looking forward to a fun school year together!
Ms. Joy Bump
This is my 3rd year as the school nurse for Cowden. I raise English Cream Golden Retrievers. In my spare time I love to cook and read.
