Welcome to the 2017 – 2018 school year!! Please check back weekly for updated homework posts, as well as links to useful resources (classroom notes, etc.). Check out the Calendar page to see when tests or quizzes will be given and when other important events (STAR Math, ISTEP, etc.) will occur. The calendar also shows the mornings I am available for tutoring. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions, concerns, and/or suggestions.

Congratulations to Blake Gindling!!!

About Mrs. Bower

I am a native of Batesville, IN and am a 2007 graduate of Hanover College. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in mathematics and am certified to teach grades 5 – 12.  I completed my master’s degree through Indiana University East in 2010.  The 2017 – 2018 school year will be my 11th year teaching at Sunman-Dearborn Middle School.  I have taught Math 8 (previously known as Pre-Algebra) each year of my teaching career.  This will be the third year I have taught the High Ability math courses for the 7th grade.  In my spare time I enjoy running (I have ran 10 half-marathons!), watching sports (especially the Cincinnati Reds), playing the piano, and spending time with my husband, daughter (6 years old) and son (4 years old).
