Mrs. Owens

My career in education began over 30 years ago and a military spouse. My family and I settled in Virginia after spending over 30 years in the US Army. I have taught in North Carolina, Georgia, Nebraska, Department of Defense Schools (North Carolina and Germany), and Virginia. We arrived in Prince William County in 2000 and I have taught and been an administrator in both elementary and middle schools. I am a proud mother of three children who are products of Prince William County Schools: My oldest daughter is a former teacher and school administrator in PWCS. She is currently resides in Pennsylvania with her husband and son where she works as a middle school administrator. My middle daughter attends VCU as a pharmacy student, and my youngest son is a high school student in PWCS. I look forward to building positive relationships by fostering and embracing a school culture conducive to learning and success. It is my responsibility to continue the vision, mission, and goals set by our school, students, parents, and community. Please feel free to contact me at any time.
