Facts About Mrs. Bowles:

This is my 21st year teaching in Elmhurst. I taught at Sandburg Middle School for the first 6 years. I have always taught math- but sometimes it was 7th or 8th grade. I have taught Social Studies and English before- for one year.

I went to Bryan MS back in 1981-1984 and York HS from 1984-1988. I went to C.O.D. for my Associate's Degree and then University of Illinois for my Bachelor's Degree. I have my Master's Degree in Secondary Education- Math, and I have taken over 40 more graduate level hours of coursework.

I have a son, Jason, who is 23, lives in Milwaukee, has a degree in Sports Management and is currently working on a certificate in Coding. I have a daughter, Amy, who is 20, a junior at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, and is planning to get a degree in Pharmacy. My husband, Tom, unfortunately passed away in late July after a 20-year battle with lung cancer. I help raise money for lung cancer research through an event called Breathe Deep DuPage every fall, because I have seen great changes in treatments over the years, and without those changes we would have lost him a lot sooner.

I love math (obviously), sports, reading, music (Walk the Moon, Twenty-One Pilots), penguins, kindness, and helping students understand how fun and helpful math can be!
