My name is Barbara Lowrie and I am one of three of the 7th grade Math teachers at Jacksonville Middle School. I have been with JISD for 12 years. After this year, I will have 29 years in education with experience at several age levels including 1st, 3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th and 8th. I grew in Crockett, Texas and graduated from Crockett High School in 1984. I got my undergraduate degree at Sam Houston State University in Education with a Math minor. In 1991, I graduated with my Masters in Education with a Reading minor from Sam Houston State University. I truly enjoy teaching Math and it is my goal every year to make my students feel more comfortable with Math during their tenure with me and for the rest of their lives.
