Hello! I'm Julia Bowen and I'm thrilled to be teaching 5th grade at Hygiene this year. This is my first year here, and my 11th year teaching. I grew up outside Chicago, went to college in Vermont and began my teaching career in New Mexico with Teach For America while getting my Masters at Western New Mexico University. I then spent 7 years teaching in the Chicago area before moving to Colorado this summer. Outside of school, I enjoy hiking, camping, reading, cooking and tending to my very first vegetable garden. I am also a certified yoga instructor and enjoy bringing elements of mindfulness and movement into my classroom. I am grateful to spend my days with the Hygiene community working to instill a love of lifelong learning and curiosity in my students.
