Hello!! My name is Rachel Bowker and I am the Life Skills teacher here at H.G. Temple Elementary School. I'm so very excited about this upcoming school year!
This will be my 5th year of teaching but my 9th year in education. I was a Special Education aid for 3 years in Nacogdoches ISD and I taught PPCD for 3 years here at Diboll ISD.
A little bit about me:
I grew up in Germany and Italy with my parents and younger brother. My parents are retired teachers with the Department of Defense Schools (DODDS) and my brother is currently serving in the Marine Corps. I moved from Germany after I graduated from high school to attend Angelina College and SFA! I love everything about East Texas and I am so very glad that I have built a life here! I believe I am a Texas girl at heart, even though I was not born here. :)
I have my masters degree in Special Education and I also have a bachelors degree in Communications. I love teaching and do not see myself doing anything else for the rest of my life. Once a student enters my classroom, they will forever and always be my "kiddo."
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!
