8th Grade Homeroom/Math and 6th-8th STEM Teacher

All About Mrs. Ower

My name is Jennifer Ower. For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a teacher! I believe that students all have different paths, different ways of being smart, and different ways of expressing what they know. A student’s mission is not to just learn facts and figures, but rather to learn how they learn best. With this knowledge, a student can tackle any problem, learn whatever interests them, and dream any dream. Students must also learn how they can use their gifts to help others. I look forward to helping all students on their learning journey.

Teaching Background:

I received my BA in Psychology, Teaching Credential and Master's in Education all from UCLA. This is my 20th year as a teacher and 7th year at JCS. I have taught grades 1st through 8th and am a National Board Certified teacher.

Personal Background:

I have a wonderful family. My husband and I have been married for 17 years and have always lived in Corona. I have two sons, who are in 7th and 9th grade. We also have three cats. We are always on the go with hockey, theater, Boy Scouts, as well as traveling!
