Mrs. Colleen Cowher

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! I have been teaching in Livonia since 1989 and have been a part of the amazing Hoover Family since 1994. After teaching in the classroom for 33 years, I am so excited to work with students and the school community in a different capacity.  I am one of Hoover's two Elementary Support Teachers. As an EST, I will be supporting K-4 students who require additional support in the area of literacy and mathematics. 

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 31 years old and lives in Perrysburgh, Ohio with his wife, Taylor. My son Dan is 29 years old and lives in Dexter, Michigan with his wife, Ashley. Our youngest son, Bobby, is 26 years old and lives in Chicago with his wife, Samantha. 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.  Feel free to reach out to me throughout the school year if you have any questions or concerns.  It's going to be an awesome year!
