Mrs. Colleen Cowher

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! My name is Colleen Cowher and I am so excited to be your child's third grade teacher. I know that it is going to be a productive and fun year. I have been teaching in Livonia since 1989. My first teaching assignment was at Tyler Elementary School (Now Webster) teaching second grade. Over my thirty plus years, I have had the opportunity to teach at many different grade levels. I feel incredibly lucky to have been a part of the Hoover community since 1993.

When I am not teaching I enjoy bike riding, hiking, reading, and traveling. My favorite activity is spending time with my husband Tim and our three sons. My husband and I live in Northville and we are adjusting to being empty nesters. Our son Patrick is 29 years old and lives in Albany, New York with his fiance Taylor. Their original wedding was postponed due to the pandemic and is now rescheduled for December 18th. My son Dan is 27 years old and lives in Dexter, Michigan with his wife Ashley. Our youngest son, Bobby, is 24 years old and lives in Chicago. I am anticipating an engagement announcement in the near future. Getting the family together in the same place at the same time is always challenging, but so great when it happens.

I believe strongly in helping every student, every day, no matter what it takes. Building positive, respectful relationships and working together will make this the best year ever for your child. I look forward to communicating with you often through emails, notes, phone calls, and Class Dojo. I am happy to meet with you throughout the school year to discuss your child's progress. I can't wait to start this new school year and work with another awesome group of Hoover Rockets.
