Ms. Fowlkes taught in Athens, Georgia for several years before moving to Oakland and joining the Glenview team. She has a BA in Middle School Education and a Masters in Elementary Education from the University of Georgia. She is originally from Alabama and is enjoying the lack of humidity in the Bay Area. Ms. Fowlkes has loved getting to know the wonderful students, parents, and staff at Glenview! Creating a close classroom community is one of her favorite aspects of teaching.
Ms. Fowlkes sees the benefits of teaching her students The 12 Tools for Learning, and her personal favorite is The Garbage Can Tool - she lets the little things go and models this for her students!! When watching her teach, you will see her students using the tools (and reading The Lorax, her favorite children's book!)
Outside of school, Ms. Fowlkes enjoys cooking, watching movies, playing board games, and spending time with family. Her dream vacation is to cruise the Mediterranean Sea and stop in Italy and Greece!
