My name is Mary Bowens, and I am the teacher in the Red Room. I have been at Project Help for almost 2 years. I have a degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Early Childhood Education. I have over 15 years of experience in touching the lives of children from newborn to ten year olds.

I spent over 7 years in early childhood education as an aide, teacher, infant room supervisor, and trainer. After college, my focus became Elementary Education, where I spent over 6 years instructing and mentoring kindergarten thru fourth grade students. I left the classroom and pursued a career in education publishing, where I assisted with the creation of curriculum and trained teachers to use the materials. Currently, I am working on my prerequisite classes to pursue my Master's in Speech Pathology.

I moved to the Murfreesboro area 3 years ago from Colorado. It has been an overwhelming experience moving to the South. God has blessed me with 2 children who are 5 and 3, and a wonderful dog named Cloe. They are all the love of my life. Whenever I am not working with my blessings at Project Help I love to cross stitch, shop, participate in activities at my church, and travel.
