Meet Dr. Christa Cowen

Known For:
I am known for creating a calm and approachable learning environment while challenging students to dig deeper and not merely accepting information at face value. I encourage students to recognize that information evolves with the latest discoveries, fostering a continuous pursuit of knowledge. Above all else, I empower students to believe in their abilities.

When not in the classroom, can often be found:
Engaging in adventurous activities with my two teenage boys, friends, and family. I am a yoga enthusiast and find peace in nature, traveling, and at church.

Embrace the journey of self-improvement: When you know better, strive to do better, extend grace to yourself, and unfailingly confront your challenges with unwavering resilience. Hold your head high and stand tall with fearless determination.
