Hello My Name Is...

Marsha Anne Bowen

         I am super excited about my new position as the Library Media Specialist at Fairview Elementary.  It is wonderful to be a part of Roanoke City Public Schools. I have been in education for 26 years working as a special education teacher and librarian. The Roanoke community has made my husband and I feel welcome. 

          I was born and raised in Richlands, VA where I still have family. My husband, Scott, and I moved to Roanoke from Emerald Isle, NC in August. Together we have four children, Aaron, Jason, Will, and Bo.  My adopted children include two coonhounds, Duke and Simon, and one labradoodle, Oney Banx.

I have the privilege of working with a wonderful and very talented assistant, Christy Foley.  Together we work as a team to meet the needs of all our students. Together, we have a fun and exciting learning environment--never a dull moment.

In the summer, I enjoy traveling and watching my youngest boys play sports.
