Mrs. Laurie Gowin

Meet The Teacher

I am Laurie Gowin. I am really excited for another year at Ruth Powell Elementary! Music is a universal language, and can be applied to every aspect in life. This is my twelfth year teaching elementary music. Before this, I taught at Gila Preparatory Academy (grades 6-12) for 6 years. I have taught several subjects over the years, and Music is my favorite. A close runner-up would be Theatre. I have my AA Degree in Theatre and Cinematic Arts from EAC, my Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in Learning and Pedagogy from NAU, and a Masters in Music Education from ASU. I recently earned my National Board Certification in Early and Middle Childhood Music! Music has always been a passion in my life, and I am excited to share this with you!
