Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Natalie Bowman
I am Natalie Bowman and this will be my 14th year teaching - 13 of which have been here at CHES! I graduated from ECU in 2005 with my undergrad degree, and in 2010 with my Masters in Reading. I am very passionate about reading - I love to read and my goal is to instill a love of reading in all of my students. It doesn't matter what you read as long - as you are reading! I am always looking for some new books to read, so if you have a suggestion feel free to share with me your favorite books.
A little about me. Family time is very important to me - so I try to spend as much time as possible with my family both those that are near and far. My son, Matthew, will be 1 in September and he keeps us busy... he is always on the go! When we have some free time, I love to travel and spend time outdoors. My husband and I are always out exploring new places to hike, and visit. One of my favorite vacations was spent hiking through the Columbia River Gorge outside of Portland, Oregon. In addition to traveling to new places, we like to visit my family in Nova Scotia, Canada and spending time at the beach. In the summer we are usually in one or the other for several weeks! In addition to traveling and hiking, I enjoy photography.
In the fall during football season I can be found cheering on my beloved ECU Pirates and my husband's school Virginia Tech - Go Hokies! - however, when our teams play there is some tension in our house! In addtion to football I love Hockey - Go Canes!!!
I look forward to working with your student this upcoming year! Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
