My Bio

Hello Roadrunners! I have newly become Mrs. Cowled. I live in Gilbert, have 2 amazing sons, and 3 very large dogs (two boxers and a mastiff mix). I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with your children. I have always had a love for mathematics- some people call that crazy, but that is okay by me. I was born and raised in Michigan and am a diehard Michigan Wolverine fan. I began my college career in Secondary Ed, Mathematics. I came out to Arizona for spring break for vacation, climbed Camelback, fell in love with the weather, and moved out here shortly thereafter. I finished up at ASU and received my Bachelor of Science in Marketing.

I went into teaching in 2002 until I had my oldest son and decided to stay home to raise my children. I started a business in 2007 and ran it until 2018 when my youngest son told me I needed to do what I loved. He was correct so I came back to teaching. I am so happy my 12-year-old was able to teach me an important life lesson. I feel that every person, especially kids, have something to teach us throughout our lives and hopefully, I can teach them a few things along the way!
