Mrs. Mandy Bowden
Welcome Back to a new school year! I am excited to be your computer lab teacher again this year.
My name is Mandy Bowden and this will be my 22nd year at McGee's Elementary. I am married and have 2 beautiful daughters and one awesome Granddaughter. I have been a Teacher Assistant (TA) in numerous grade levels but Kindergarten is by far my favorite. I have also been the Director of After School Care for the past 8 years. January 2020 I took over the Computer Lab and WebMaster responsibilities at McGee's. It has been a challenging journey especially with COVID-19 impacting the end of 2019-2020 school year. In 2020 I took on yet another challenge. I designed our school yearbook. I enjoyed this new task and l am looking forward to continueing to improve and make our school's yearbook one of the best. I LOVE anything Snowman and Weinie Dogs (Daschund). I love to read and play card games with my family. I have 2 dogs, a Daschund named Peanut and a Black Lab/Weimer Mix named Minnie.
On June 16th I had replacement surgery on my left knee. I am doing great and am back to walking without my cane. YEA!!! I am looking forward to a new school year and hopefully (keep your fingers crossed) things will be back to normal.
Stay safe and healthy.
