Today, it’s our 3rd-Grade teacher, Mrs. Rowlands who is in the Summer Spotlight. A founder and ongoing champion of the Makerspace here at Ascension, she is always looking for ways to cultivate opportunities for students to connect their learning to the real world. “Teaching at Ascension is exciting,” says Mrs. Rowlands, “because while we are exploring academic concepts, we are simultaneously learning about how God calls us to be leaders and servants in our world.” She finds that this approach inevitably sparks inspiration, creativity, and excitement in the students she is with, whether in 3rd grade or the Makerspace.
This summer Mrs. Rowlands will spend some time in Ohio celebrating her daughter who will be receiving her white coat as a Physician’s Assistant! A fun fact about Mrs. Rowlands is that she has run 7 marathons and hopes to run an international marathon sometime in the future. We are extremely blessed by her energy, creativity, and passion for teaching!
