Ms. Jess, Special Education Teacher-Autism
Hello! My name is Jess Bowman and I am an Autism teacher in Room 102 at Lyndale Community School. I started out as a paraprofessional in Intermediate School District #917 where I worked in a Setting 4 K-5 Cross-Categorical special education classroom. I worked in ISD #917 for two years and then came to Minneapolis Public Schools. My first year at MPS I worked at Lyndale as an Special Education Assistant. I worked at Lyndale for one year and then moved to Marcy Open School where I worked for 7 years as an SEA and then one year as an Autism teacher. I have been an Autism Teacher at Lyndale since 2017.
I graduated from Augsburg College with their Academic Behavior Strategist (ABS) special education license. I also have my Developmental Delay and Autism Spectrum Disorder Licenses from Southwest Minnesota State.
I play hockey in the winter and softball in the summer. I love to do puzzles and go bike riding. I have a 27 year old bird that I have hand raised since he was a baby.
