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.
