Mr. David Greer
Reading Interventionist
I started my teaching career in Marionville in 2000 and joined the Springfield school district in 2012. During those years I taught several years in each grade 2nd through 5th. In 2016 I left the regular classroom setting to become a Reading Interventionist here at Cowden. Best decision I’ve ever made.This is such a great school and a wonderful staff.
Mrs. Lynn Schick
English Language Learners
My name is Lynn Schick. As a child, I was introduced to people from all over the world, which led to a lifetime love of languages and cultures. I am eager to use that experience to help my students at Holland and Cowden learn English and navigate American culture. In my free time, I read dictionaries for fun, knit challenging patterns, sew some of my clothes, bake, and spend time with my family, but not always in that order.
