Mrs. Colleen Cowher

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! My name is Colleen Cowher and I am so excited to be your child's third grade teacher. I know that it is going to be a productive and fun year.  I have been teaching in Livonia since 1990. Throughout the years, I have had the opportunity to teach first, second, third, fourth and sixth grade. I have been incredibly fortunate to have taught at Hoover for 26 of my 30 years.

When I am not teaching I enjoy bike riding, hiking, reading, and traveling. My favorite activity is spending time with my husband Tim and our three sons. My husband and I live in Northville and we are officially "Empty Nesters". Our son Patrick is 27 years old and lives in New York. Dan is 25 years old and lives in Ann Arbor with his wife Ashley. Our youngest son, Bobby, is 22 years old and lives in Chicago. Getting the family together in the same place at the same time is challenging, but well worth the effort!

I can honestly say that after 30 or so years, I still am passionate about teaching students. I believe strongly in helping every student, every day, no matter what it takes. Building positive, respectful relationships and working together will make this the best year ever for your child. I look forward to communicating with you often through emails, newletters, notes, planner, phone calls, and Class Dojo.  I am available before and after school. Please feel free to stop by.
