Savannah Christian Preparatory School Teacher Named 2018 Georgia Independent School Association Teacher of the Year

November 5th, 2018

Savannah Christian Preparatory School Teacher of the Year

Congratulations to Mrs. Summer Bowen, a prekindergarten teacher at Savannah Christian Preparatory School (SCPS) in Chatham County, on being named the 2018 Teacher of the Year for the Georgia Independent School Association (GISA). The announcement occurred Mon. Nov. 5 @ the group’s annual conference in Atlanta. SCPS now employs the GISA Teacher of the Year for 2017 and 2018.

“Mrs. Bowen is an exceptional teacher, and it is evident from the interactions she has with her students, parents, and peers that she represents the true essence of what it means to be a teacher,” said SCPS headmaster Dr. Chris Harmon. He added, “While she is an outstanding teacher who wants her students to remember what they learned, her chief desire is that her students feel loved, inspired, and capable of accomplishing anything they try.”

Mrs. Bowen graduated from Georgia Southern University in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education and continued her education at Georgia Southern University, obtaining a master’s degree in teaching and learning in 2009. Before attending Georgia Southern University, she was a student at SCPS for thirteen years. Dr. Harmon states, “Mrs. Bowen not only represents the best of the best in teaching, but she is also a fantastic representation of our SCPS Alumni.”

Mrs. Bowen strives to meet the individual needs of each student and describes teaching as “a work of the heart.” She believes teaching is more than a sit and listen activity. In her view, “Education is making a positive difference in a child’s life whether that is academically, spiritually, intellectually, or hopefully, all of the above.” To Mrs. Bowen, education is more than a job – it is a calling.

The lower school principal at SCPS, Miss Becky Knight, nominated Mrs. Bowen for the award. In her nomination, Miss Knight describes Mrs. Bowen as “a student-centered teacher who develops inspiring relationships with her students and families while implementing engaging lessons in the classroom.” Miss Knight believes that Mrs. Bowen is “passionate about teaching and knows the impact she has on a young learner.” One of her teammates, Ms. Jill Elton, adds that Mrs. Bowen “strives to create the best learning environment that she can and is a great role model, leader, and team player.”

The 48th New York Infantry was stationed at Fort Pulaski from June 1862 through June 1863.

Your kids can become a Junior Ranger 

Take advantage of the fact that we live within a day’s drive of multiple national parks & monuments & have your kids become a junior ranger at one or many of these sites.

When you take kids to tour national parks, you never know how much they are getting out of the visit. Especially for those of us moms who aren’t exactly history experts.

Which is why you need to pick up the Junior Ranger booklets at the visitor centers of national parks you visit. The Junior Ranger program kids engage more during the visits.

Junior Ranger booklets have activities about the national parks for ages 5-12. Junior ranger books are free to any visitor and usually are available at the visitors’ centers. Often, similar programs with more advanced activities are also available for older kids. Just ask at the site’s visitor center.

While doing the activities, children enjoy earning a badge and a certificate.

*Fort Pulaski National Monument, on U.S. 80 en route to Tybee Island. Info on the Fort Pulaski Junior Program here.
