Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Amanda Bowie
6th Grade Literacy
Hello! My name is Ms. Bowie. I have been teaching in the district since 2001. I attended Iowa State University where I received my B.S. degree in elementary education in 2000. I earned my reading endorsement from Simpson College. In 2008, I received my M.A. degree with a K-12 reading specialist endorsement from Viterbo University. , I also have my middle school endorsement from Morningside College. Before teaching at Parkview, I taught 2nd grade at Prairie Trail for 3 years and 1st and 2nd grade at Westwood Elementary for 11 years. Prior to teaching in Ankeny, I taught one year of 1st grade at Clarke Community School District in Osceola, Iowa.
Since I was a little girl, I always wanted to be a teacher. I love helping children learn, and I love to see my students' smiling faces each morning as they come in ready to learn.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my son. We have two dogs and one cat. I enjoy being outside (especially golfing), sports, reading, and having fun with my family and friends.
