Wonderful 103 Grade 2

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 2018-2019 school year.  This is my 34rd year as a teacher in the Minneapolis Schools. I have been at Hiawatha for 32 years teaching second grade.  

     My husband Jay just retired after teaching at Howe/Hiawatha for 33 years.  

     We have two sons.  Our youngest is Jordan.  He's just graduated from the Mayo School of Health Sciences in Rochester.  He just got a job as a Physical Therapist in Hastings and really enjoys his work. Our son Josh is married to Kelsey. They both live in Fergus Falls, MN.  Josh is a band director and Kelsey is a nurse.  This summer they had a baby girl!!!!! Her name is Hallie Grace, she has graced us with lots of memorable moments already. She's our first grandchild and it's incredible being a grandma.

     We also enjoyed our summer by getting some home projects done, by visiting family and friends, and hanging out in our backyard. 

     I look forward to a great year with you and your child.


                                                   Kim Berg-McGowan
