Meet the Faces of Spicewood #62: Jennifer Dower

Dear Audience,

Please take a few minutes to get to know one of our great 2nd grade teachers, Miss Jenna Dower!

Miss Dower was born in St. Paul, Minnesota. She moved to the greater Austin area with her family as a child. She actually attended Spicewood Elementary School as a child in 2nd grade! She has an older brother. Her mom and dad also reside in Austin and they both have been valuable supporters of our students as they volunteered their valuable time throughout the school year. Miss Dower loves her adorable Yorkie who is definitely worth bragging about. :) This is Miss Dower's first year at Spicewood as she joined us from Live Oak ES at the beginning of the school year. She shared that she has always wanted to be a teacher. She loves chocolate and color purple. Her favorite children's book is Chrysanthemum. She also picks Tuesdays with Morrie as one of her favorite reads.

Her favorite thing about working at Spicewood is her kids! "Everyone here cares for the children," shared Miss Dower. She'd like to tell our young minds to  love yourself and treat yourself with love!

Miss Dower was asked to join us very last minute last summer- two days before school started- due to our increased enrollment number; she, without a complaint, moved everything from Live Oak ES in a day and set up her classroom with a positive attitude. We're very thankful that her positive spirit made a difference on our campus this school year!
