Brynne Bowens

High School English Instructor

Hi all! My name is Brynne Bowens and I was not born in Paris, but raised here for the majority of my life. I ran off to college, but this small town and its hospitality beckoned me home. I graduated from Morehead State University with a bachelor’s degree in Secondary English Education. I teach English I, III and Senior English. I  am the assistant coach for the high school girls soccer team and volunteer assistant for the high school track team. Go Hounds! While attending Morehead State I ran for their Track and Field team and met my husband, James Bowens. It was an awesome time!

James and I are new parents as of June 19, 2015. Our twin sons, Ezra and Josiah, were born prematurely, but are the strongest little humans I know. They bring a whole new meaning to my life and I feel so blessed to be their mother. We also have two dogs: Scout, a very spoiled and want-to-be-diva Basset Hound, and her little brother Chief, who is also a (very loud) Basset. We also have a clinger cat and her name is Sheba. All three of our animals are inside and we love, love, love cuddle time!  We live in Georgetown, Kentucky but travel often to James’ hometown and visit with his family in Paducah, Kentucky. If you’re like me, I didn’t think anything existed past Bowling Green before meeting James, but if I had to live anywhere else in Kentucky it would be Paducah. It is beautiful!

In my spare time I like to spend nights with family and friends, play board games, watch football, run, workout, play soccer, and read novels.

My teaching philosophy is simple. I am a director of a fabulous play, a play consisting of a cast of all types of learners and skills of all different levels. We must practice, rehearse, read, re-read, and most importantly not fear imperfection. I strive to help all my students excel at their own roles, motivating them to shine in the spotlight and go out before their audience—their world—with a powerful voice.
