Mrs. Carol Bowdler

Congratulations to Mrs. Carol Bowdler, November Staff Member of the Month at Wellsville Junior/Senior High School.  Mrs. Bowdler is in her 13th year as an Intervention Specialist at Wellsville where she has serviced grades 7 -12.  Prior to teaching at the high school, she spent five years at Daw Middle School.  This year Mrs. Bowdler is teaching three English classes and is the intervention specialist in three math classes.

Mrs. Bowdler was born in Bedford, England – she remained in England long enough to receive a degree in business and become the wife of Mr. Mick Bowdler.  After coming to the United States in 1981, she took a job as travel agent with the AAA which she held for 15 years.  She spent time with her own two children , Alan and Natalie, in an elementary reading volunteer position at Calcutta Elementary School.  Mrs. Bowdler was studying to become an elementary teacher, but switched to special education after taking courses in that area and received her degree from Youngstown State University.  She has a master’s degree in Curriculum Design from the University of Scranton.  She has also completed all requirements to become HQT in the four core areas.  Mrs. Bowdler is very active serving on committees at the Longs Run Presbyterian Church and does annual missionary work to clean and prepare the church camp.

Carol is a dedicated educator who always puts her students first.  Her colleagues will tell you that she is amazing at what she does – she has a calm, caring manner and can soothe any situation that arises, she is dependable and efficient, she is patient, her organizational skills are remarkable, she is the reason that many seniors have received their diplomas, and she is always positive and professional.  All agree that she is a valuable asset to the school district and a great role model for staff and students alike.

Mrs. Bowdler and her husband, Mick, have two grown children, Alan (Samantha) and Natalie.  We are blessed and fortunate to have Mrs. Bowdler as part of our staff.  Congratulations and thank you for everything that you do for the students at Wellsville Junior/Senior High School.
