Stephanie Bower is excited to be teaching Newcomer EL History and Civics classes this year. She will be working with Ms. Figi, Ms. Turner and Mr. Penka in team taught classes as well. It is her eleventh year at Harper Park, but her second year as an EL teacher (for students whose first language is not English). She earned both her Bachelor of Arts in History as well as her Master's in Middle Education from George Mason University. Prior to working as an EL teacher, she was a Resource teacher at Harper Park. Before that she was a kindergarten teaching assistant at the American School Dubai.
Ms. Bower grew up mostly in Northern Virginia but lived around the world as a child and an adult. She enjoys spending time with her three children, traveling and spending time with friends.
Please contact Ms. Bower with any questions you might have. Let's have a fantastic year!
