Bowman Notes School’s Diversity, College-Going Culture

Nicholas Wiggan, Reporter

Jennifer Bowman was born in Las Vegas, Nevada and attended University of Nevada at Las Vegas. She has a general teaching degree, but is now studying at University of Hawaii Manoa for her degree in special education.

With teaching experience in two states, she noticed a marked difference. She said that in Nevada she “emphasized to my students to enter tourism, because that is where their parents work, whereas [in Hawaii], the focus is more on going to college.”

During her short time at the school, Bowman has already noted how students from different cultures blend and get along.

In her free time, Bowman enjoys gardening and going on outings to the beach and museum with her six children.
