Judy Rowe is now retired. At the time of her award, teacher Judy Rowe integrated science, art, social studies and technology in her fifth-grade classroom at Reynolds Arts Magnet School in Bristol. While building a solid foundation in her students' science learning, she sparks their imagination and creativity by providing personal examples from her previous career as a medical technologist. Mrs. Rowe's social studies units on the Civil War and Native Americans come alive as students make books, dress in costumes and cook foods related to the subject. At her previous school, she organized a Reading Week and had her students participate in the Science Fair. Mrs. Rowe is a member of her school's focus team, and is currently developing rubrics for math and science learning.
