My name is Michelle McGowan and I am delighted to welcome you to 5th grade! This is my third year at Holtzman and my seventh year teaching overall. I grew up in Harrisburg and actually attended this very school when it was known as "Herbert Hoover!" After graduating high school, I lived and worked in Los Angeles and New York City before returning to my hometown to become a teacher.
Outside of school, I love to perform experiments in my kitchen (i.e. cook), pretend to do yoga, travel with my husband and toddler, and visit the library/museums/historical sites/etc. I am absolutely passionate about learning new things and am excited to bring that passion into my classroom! I look forward to getting to know you this year. Please feel free to contact me via Dojo, phone, or email if you have any questions, concerns, or compliments! :)
