Welcome Cowan Community to the Home of the Tigers! I have served students in the LAUSD for over 37 years. After earning my credential from UCLA, I followed my passion into elementary school teaching. By 1990, I grew enamored with the high quality curriculum and remarkable student diversity achieved through the District's magnet programs.  As a testament to my dedication to this ideology, I saw to it that both of my children enrolled in magnet programs within the District—in fact, I had the opportunity to teach them both as first and second graders.  After 32 years as a Nationally Board Certified teacher, I transitioned out of the classroom to become a magnet coordinator. I am thrilled to be working at Cowan G/HA International Global Humanities Magnet.  I am so proud of our program, our staff, and the students we serve.  Cowan offers an exceptional academic program aimed at creating lifelong learners.  I host tours of our facilities each week.  Please feel free to call or stop by our campus for more information--or just to say "Hi!"  I look forward to seeing you!
