Ms. Denise Owens

My name is Denise Owens and I am the Curriculum Coach. This is my second year at EES and my 22nd year teaching. I have the awesome opportunity to teach and support students and teachers. My passion in education is literacy and I have served on the NC Reading Association board for several years, as well as our local reading council, Tar River Reading Council. I hold a Masters Degree in Reading Education, as well as National Board Certification in Early and Middle Childhood Literacy.  I live in Winterville and have the sweetest rescue beagle named Charlie. I look forward to another successful school year working with amazing staff, students, parents and this community!
