Ms. Jessica Bowman
My name is Jessica Bowman and I am a Kindergarten teacher. I grew up in North Augusta and attended Belvedere Elementary as child. I have 2 young sons. Being a new mommy is my focus outside of school. I am also a licensed Zumba instructor and group fitness is my jam. I also enjoy attempting DIYs, cooking new meals, and trying new restaurants or places. Foodie at heart here.
I have lived in Columbia, Rock Hill, Charleston, and finally back to my hometown. This will be my seventeenth year teaching, and my eighth year in Kindergarten at Belvedere. I have also taught first grade, second grade, and now the littles in Kindergarten. One of my goals is to build a positive relationship with students and families. I am also big on guiding our youngest scholars to be independent thinkers and confident in their abilities. It's my pleasure and privilege to serve your children. I am looking forward to a great year of teaching and learning.
