Mrs. Amber Bowens

Ms. Bowens is a former Speech and Language Pathologist and since retirement, she has been supporting Lake Myra in a variety of ways (long term subbing, short term subbing and volunteering) over the past eight years. This past year, Mrs. Bowens decided to join the Lake Family permanently as an Instructional Assistant. She could not stay away! Children are Mrs. Bowen's passion. I enjoy seeing the children learn new things and she especially loves the hugs she gets. When Mrs. Bowen's is not at school, she enjoys watching TV. and relaxing with a cup of coffee. Mrs. Bowen's especially loves music. She is currently a vocalist with an R&B band, but due to COVID they are currently on a break. Mrs. Bowen's favorite book is Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory.
