    All About Mrs. Bower

    Hello and Welcome,

    My name is Colleen Bower. This is my 11th year teaching at Ellicottville

    Central School. I have taught many grade levels at ECS, but have found my home in

    first grade for the last three years.

    I live in Ellicottville with my husband, Bryan and my two sons, Josh and

    Kevin. Both of my boys graduated from ECS. They are now in college pursuing their


    I enjoy spending time with my family and love to travel. We just came back

    from a trip to Chicago where we visited two ballparks, ate a lot of deep-dish pizza and

    took a three-hour Segway tour. We had an amazing time and the weather was


    I grew up in Central Pennsylvania where I received my BS degree in

    Elementary Education and Library Science. I always knew I wanted to be an

    educator. My mom taught elementary school for 35 years, so I guess it is in my blood.

    My husband is a Department of Energy employee. His job has moved us

    several places throughout the country. I have lived and taught in Pennsylvania,

    New Mexico, and Maryland. What a wonderful experience!

    After moving to New York, I stayed at home with my boys, but the longing for

    teaching remained with me. When my younger son entered school, I knew it was time

    for me to continue my dream. New York State required a MS degree. I obtained this

    at Mercyhurst University and was fortunate enough to begin teaching at ECS.

    Well, there you have it – my life in a nutshell. I look forward to getting to know

    you and your family. I believe that we are partners in your child’s education. I am

    looking forward to a very rewarding year.
