Mrs. McGowan in second Grade

 

Dear Parents of Students in Room 103,

 

     I am very happy to be your child's second grade teacher during the 2019-2020 school year.  This is my 35th year as a teacher in the Minneapolis Schools. I have been at Hiawatha for 33 years teaching second grade. I love the Hiawatha kids, staff and community!

     My husband Jay retired after teaching at Howe/Hiawatha for 33 years. He's loving all the new opportunities.

     We have two sons.  Our youngest is Jordan.  He's a Physical Therapist in Hastings and really enjoys his work. He lives in the Highland area so he stops by occasionally! Our son Josh is married to Kelsey. They live in Fergus Falls, MN.  Josh is a band director and Kelsey is a nurse.  Their daughter Hallie Grace, has graced us with lots of memorable moments in her first year of life. She's our first grandchild and it's incredible being a grandma. We make it up to Fergus Falls as often as we can! We also have a one year old dog named Lucy!

     We have enjoyed our summer by getting some home projects done, by traveling to Colorado, and hanging out in our backyard. 

     I look forward to a great year with you and your child. I think second grade is the best year! It's really fun!

                                                   Sincerely,

                                                   Kim Berg-McGowan
