The English department is also getting a new member, Mackenzie Sowers. She teaches English 9 and American Literature.
“I am looking forward to house as one thing that’s really new to me,” Sowers said. “I like the idea of everyone coming together in the atmosphere. I’m looking forward to the bigger classes … and bringing what I’ve taught in the past and trying it for my students.”
In her free time, Sowers coaches volleyball and she is training for a weightlifting competition.
Sowers graduated from Ohio Northern University.
In high school, Sowers played volleyball and softball, and she was a part of student council and on prom committee.
“Like house we had an Olympics so that day of competition was my favorite,” Sowers said. “I remember playing dodgeball with my brother, we’re only a year apart, so it was grade levels that played … and every year all the two of us were in high school we played dodgeball against each other. So that was fun … school spirit and dressing up and doing things to make our school fun.”
