About Me: 
Welcome to Magnolia Intermediate! My name is Brooke Cowger and I will be your 5th grade math teacher for the 2019-2020 school year. This will be my second year teaching in Magnolia and there is no where else I would rather be! I am so grateful that I get to do what I love everyday and to share my passion with all of my students.
 
I graduated from the University of Houston- Clear Lake with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Accounting. I worked in the accounting world for a short period of time before I realized that it was not my true passion. I started teaching in 2018 and have not looked back since!  I am a wife to a coach at Magnolia Junior High and am a mom to three sweet, spoiled dogs- Myles, Maple, and Coach. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the lake, shopping, camping, and watching the Houston Astros. 
 
As we dive into this school year, please remember that the expert at anything was once a beginner. Here is to an awesome and memorable year!
