My name is Julie Bowman and I have been teaching Language Arts at Arndt Middle School for 16 years. I am a Catawba County native having attended Claremont Elementary, Catawba Middle School, and Bunker Hill High School. I graduated from Appalachian State University in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Middle Grades Education.
I completed my student teaching at Arndt in the fall of 2001 and took a 7th grade Language Arts teaching position at Arndt in January of 2002. I taught 7th grade Language Arts for nine years and have taught 8th grade for the past seven years. This is my 8th year teaching 8th grade Language Arts. I am a mentor teacher for first year through third year teachers, Student Council advisor, and Battle of the Books coach. I also have my local AIG certification.
My husband Ryan and I have been married for 15 years. We have two beautiful daughters, Ivy-10 years old (5th grader) and Aubree-5 years old (kindergarten). In my time away from school I like to bake and decorate cakes, create Pinterest projects, read, and spend time with my family.
My favorite sports teams are the Carolina Panthers and the North Carolina Tarheels.
