My name is Denise Bowen. This is my sixth year working at The Preschool at Riva Trace. It is one of my favorite places. Before coming here, I worked at Little Puddle Jumpers for over five years. I also worked at Central Special School and was a Volunteer Friendly Visitor for many years. I was born in Annapolis and have lived here all my life. I have been married for 37 years and have two children. While raising our children, I returned to college and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Social work. Our daughter Grace is 27 and our son Brendan is 29. I am looking forward to a terrific year teaching your child.
