Hello! Welcome to 8th-grade English Language Arts (ELA)! My name is Mrs. Owens. I have lived in Lexington for twenty-two years and worked at Lexington Middle School for over a decade! I earned a BA in psychology and a minor in Family Studies and Social Work. Earlier in my career, I served as a Behavior Support/E.C. Teacher Assistant. After obtaining my teaching license, I taught 7th grade social studies for four years. This is my second year teaching ELA. I also serve on several committees within the school district. I love being a teacher!
During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three children. I am a self-proclaimed history buff. I am also an avid reader; I love reading a variety of fiction and non-fiction books. Other hobbies I enjoy are interior decorating (I love HGTV), cooking, photography and weightlifting.
I am also the proud mother of Lexington Senior High School's class of 2020 Valedictorian (Amarah Owens)!
