Mrs. Colleen Rowsey

My name is Colleen Rowsey and this is my 19th year teaching at Washington School! I have also taught 3rd and 4th grade, but 2nd grade is my favorite grade to teach!

I grew up in Rantoul, IL.  I went to college at Knox College, and I received my Master's degree from ISU.

I have two daughters at BJHS who also attended Washington School.  I am a huge cat lover and have 4 cats of my own!

In my spare time I love reading, shopping, being outdoors, and spending time with my family and cats.  Some of my favorite things are fall, Halloween, Mr. Rogers, lavendar, beaches, nature, birds and of course cats! I love working with 2nd graders. My favorite thing to teach them is mindfulness and how to be a good person.
