My name is Kate Bowles and I have been in education for 18 years. I have taught second grade, third grade, gifted education, reading intervention, and also worked with K-5 students as a library media specialist. I received my undergraduate degree in elementary education and masters degree in education from the University of Kansas. While not at school I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and traveling. I also enjoy coaching Girls on the Run and leading a Girl Scout troop. I am so excited to be starting my third year here at KCIA in the library, and look forward to helping our students develop a love for reading.
