Hello! My name is Allison Cowles, and I am so glad you are here! I am going into my fourth year of teaching math. I taught two years at the 6th grade level, and this will be my second year in 8th grade. I graduated from WKU in the fall of 2018 after completing student teaching at SWMS. I love my Spartan family, and I am so glad to call it home. In addition to teaching math, I am also the Beta sponsor, assistant cheerleading coach, and assistant academic team coach. I love working with our Spartans outside of school and helping them succeed.
I have been married to my husband, Jarad, for just under a year, and we have two sweet pups: Elle and Charlie. In my free time, you can find me reading, exercising, or planning and hosting a party for every holiday there is. I believe life is too short not to celebrate the little things!
I believe every student can learn and be successful in math. However, success looks different for everyone. My goal this year is for students to know what their success looks like and to celebrate their hard work and accomplishments along the way.
Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow me on Instagram and Twitter @taught_by_ms.cowles. All assignments will be posted to your students Google Classroom.
