My name is Jacob Sowell and I am your son or daughter's Language Arts teacher this year. I graduated in 2011 from Auburn University Montgomery with a Collaborative K-6 Degree. During my fourth year of teaching, I went back to Auburn University Montgomery and earned my Masters Degree in Elementary Education. On March 18, 2017 I married the love of my life and we have 2 wonderful girls.
I just wanted to tell you a little bit about myself and share with you my expectations as well as my excitement for this upcoming school year. Please know that I understand the importance of preparing students for middle school success. It is my goal to provide engaging instruction that challenges critical thinking skills, fosters intelligent discussion, and develops logical writing skills for every student.
I have very high expectations and standards that I will express clearly to each student, and I am absolutely committed to providing my students with the best education of their lives. I also believe that communication with parents is crucial to a successful year, and that honest communication can head off issues before they develop. Know that I am here with an open mind and a willingness to listen to any concerns that might arise throughout the year. If you don't understand a grade that was given, or an expectation stated, call or email me, I'd be happy to talk with you.
I expect my students to be on time, and to be prepared for the day's activities and discussions. I am in your child's life every day; it's my goal to make a powerful and positive impact, so let's work together to make that happen. I can promise you the best of myself for your son or daughter, each and every day
