Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Tracy Bowers
Ms. Bowers was raised in Indiana where the land is very flat and the country side is beautiful! She loves to be outdoors and explore the world around her. Sometimes she goes for walks or hikes outside but she would much rather be on her bike away from the busy city. Ms. Bowers received her Education Degree at Indiana State University in Terre Haute, Indiana where she grew up. Most people know ISU as the place where the famous basketball player Larry Bird went to school.
Ms. Bowers moved to Raleigh in 2001 when she received the job of teaching fourth graders at Millbrook Elementary. In the fall of 2015 she started teaching science to upper grades in the lab. She loves teaching science because it encompasses all the different subject areas. (reading, writing, math and social studies) It brings her great joy to see students enjoying their learning time in the lab or when they take their classroom outside. When students show evidence they understand how natural system and human social systems work together, it gives her hope that her students can make a difference in their environment and their future.
In 2009 Ms. Bowers became nationally board certified and continues to find many ways to increase her knowledge and continue to grow as an educator. She hopes to bring many new and awesome environmental learning experiences to Millbrook Environmental Connections Magnet Elementary School.
Ms. Bowers will be getting married in the fall of 2017 and her name will become Mrs. Brumble.
Why I am excited about our theme, Environmental and Community Connections...
Bringing this theme to Millbrook gives me hope for our future. When children are more aware of what is going on around them, it makes them more prepared to take action to make our world a great place for ALL.
Why I teach...
I want to give kids the tools to be successful in their lives no matter where they have come from or the challenges they have faced. I teach to educate our kiddos so that they can have a successful future and hopefully make a positive change in their community and their world.
