My name is Mr. Owens, and I am very excited to be a teacher on the 8H team. This is my 15th year on the best team in the school. I will be teaching four sections of Course 3 (8th grade math).
I received both my bachelor’s and master’s degree from Illinois State University. I am from Walnut, IL, a very small town about an hour and a half northwest of Bloomington/Normal.
I am married to my beautiful wife Megan. She is currently teaching 6th grade math at Evans Junior High. We have three daughters, Mackenzie Grace, Kelsey Jo, and Mary Kate. I have 3 younger sisters. I am a huge Cubs, Bears, and Bulls fan. In my spare time I enjoy golfing, mowing, and coaching softball.
This year we are in our 9th year of implementing the common core state standards. In doing so I hope to engage my students in the wonderful world of mathematics. My students will be encouraged to do their best in each level of math by means of constructive individual and group work. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me.
