Meet Debra Bowler

 This is my 13th year at West Shore and I am enjoying it more and more 
every year. The small neighborhood school atmosphere allows me to get to 
know my students and their families and form partnerships in education. 
  Before teaching at the middle school level, I was an Assistant Professor 
of Occupational Therapy at Quinnipiac University where I taught for 13 
years. I am taking all that I have learned there to help me prepare my 
students for the long road of education ahead of them.  

   When I am not teaching, I am enjoying time with my husband Leo, my son 
Zack, 28 and his new wife Christina, and my daughter Chelsea, 25.  I love being outside in my garden, at the beach, in my kayak or on long walks in the woods. 
When I am not correcting piles of papers, I also enjoy beading, going to 
concerts and to the movies.

Mission For The Class

I love teaching science and sharing a sense of wonder about things that are 
all around us in the world- my students will tell you that, "According to 
Ms. Bowler, everything is about science!!" My goal as a science teacher is 
to help my students break down some barriers they may have about who can "do" 
science. Everyone has the ability to ask questions, seek answers and make 
new discoveries. If my students can be outside of the classroom and make a 
connection, "Oh, I know why that happens!" then they have truely learned 
something in our class.
