Subjects Taught
Science -Earth and Environment


I have a BS in Biology, and MS in Middle Grades Education, both from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville.


This is my 11th year teaching, and 2017-2018 will be my 3rd at OMS.  During that time, I have had the pleasure of teaching many different subjects and groups:

- 7th grade in Knoxville, TN (Farragut Middle School)

- 9th and 10th grade in Kingsport, TN (Dobyns-Bennett High School)

- 6th and 7th grade in Winchester, TN (North Middle School)


My name is Mrs. Cowan, and I am so excited to be an owl!  2017-2018 is my third year at OMS, and my 11th year teaching science.  I love teaching and learning about science--I feel like it helps students to find their place in the world to know how it works. 

Other than teaching, I occupy most of my time with my family (I have a husband, Chris, two kiddos--Collier is 5, and Emery is 2, and 1 dog).  I love to be outside, eat yummy food, read, take naps, and run.
