Mrs. McGowan

Hello!  My name is Michelle McGowan and I am thrilled to be a part of the Hartwood Hornets team!

Originally, I am from Canada, but I have also lived in Korea, Kansas and New Mexico. For the last 15 years, Stafford County has been my home along with my husband, and three sons, all of whom have attended Hartwood ES. Currently, they attend Colonial Forge HS and Gayle MS.  

My experience includes teaching French, English Language learners, English/Language Arts and Special Needs students. I have long been a part of the Hartwood ES family as a parent, a Substitute teacher, Long-term substitute and currently teacher of students with special needs.

In my free time, I enjoy cooking, running and watching my boys swim competitively. 

I am delighted to have the opportunity to work closely with your child and be a part of their teaching team to help them have a successful school year!

Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns via email  or by phone at 540-752-4441.
