Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelors' Degree-Shaw University
My name is Fay Bowen. I was born and raised right here in Harnett County and was educated in the same school system that your child is attending now! I graduated from Harnett Central High School in 1986, and continued my education at Campbell University. I decided during my third semester that college was not a priority, so I packed up and moved to NYC for three years. Several years, a marriage and two children later, I decided it was time to return to college and finish what I had started. So, in 2003 I graduated with my Bachelor's degree from Shaw University in Raleigh, NC and began my career in the field that was my lifelong dream . . . education!
I previously taught 7th grade English Language Arts here in Harnett County, so I am not new to the field! I am married and have 3 wonderful children, 4 beautiful granddaughters and 1 handsome grandson! three beautiful granddaughters! I have a 26 year old son who recently returned to NC from Texas, a 29 year old daughter who is married and lastly, I have a 13 year old son that finished LSES in 2018 and is now at HCMS.
It is my desire to see each of my students grow and reach new levels that they never dreamed possible. I will push each student to strive for something that he/she feels is just out of reach, so that when they do master it, they know next time that they CAN DO IT! My long time motto in life is "Together we are ONE" and I feel that in the classroom, the environment should be exactly that; however, this year, I am adding #POWERTHROUGH as a motto for my life, that I am carrying forward to my classroom. A classroom of teamwork and comradery with a determined mindset that we can do it...no matter how difficult the situation, we just have to POWER THROUGH. Remember, when life gives us lemons, we make lemonade!
