My name is Shonna August and I teach Biology and Earth Science at Bowman. This is my twentieth year teaching. I spent the first 19 years of my career in Junior High School. Bowman is my first high school and I am so lucky to be a part of the Bowman staff. I believe Bowman has a heart of students. We are able to meet our students where they are and get then to where they need to be. I feel my job is not just teaching science but also preparing our students for what comes next. A quote students hear me say often is "we hit speed bumps not roadblocks". Life is not easy and sometimes obstacles get thrown in our path, but that means we just need to slow down, but continue to move forward. Bowman is a place where students can continue to move forward.
