8th Grade American History

8th Grade Gifted and Talented Advisory

Welcome to Mrs. Cowan's 8th Grade American History Class!

I have been teaching 8th grade history for 15 years.  I am passionate about the content I teach and I enjoy working with middle school students.  I am a crazy unicorn fan, having graduated from NBHS in 1996. I've lived in New Braunfels since 1989 and I love our community and our schools. 


I love teaching! It's the best job out there! I'm always eager to implement new teaching methods and push technology integration in my classroom.  I look forward to a great year with your children.


This year, students will be studying american history starting with early colonization at Jamestown, Virginia and ending with Reconstruction following the U.S. Civil War.  Students will discover the ideals and motivation behind the American Revolution and writing of the U.S. Constitution which still characterize our nation today.
