Mrs. April Owens

Look WHOOOO's in FIRST GRADE!  I am so excited that your child is going to be my little OWL (Owens' Wise Learner) this year!  I know that by working together, your child will have a TREE-mendous year!    

I grew up in Westville, SC and graduated from North Central High School in 1986.   I attended the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks!)  and graduated with a Master's of Arts in Teaching in 1992 with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education.    I have been teaching for 25 years.  Most of those years were spent teaching third grade; however, this will be my eighth year in first grade. 

My husband, Brian, and I have been married for 29 years.  He has worked for UPS for thirty-four years.   We have two girls, Meagan and Karli, ages 23 and 20, respectively.   My husband loves to cook (especially on the grill); therefore, we love to spend our free time entertaining family and friends.   We both enjoy cookouts, playing cards, relaxing in the pool, listening to good music, playing horseshoes or cornhole, and of course, watching college football!
