JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Gifted resource teacher, Cynthia Bowman at San Jose Elementary, is our Teacher of the Week.

Bowman works with different grade levels from five different schools. She focuses her classes on problem solving, stimulating creativity and critical thinking.   

"My main goal is to focus on getting a connection with my students and I try to challenge them in either way I can to set goals so that one day they can be great problem solvers as well," said Bowman.

Fourth grader Christine Driscoll enjoys her gifted class with Mrs. Bowman and wishes more of her friends could experience it too. "She does a lot of cool things. When things are too hard she gives us a little extra help so we can do what we need to do without that many problems."

The parent who nominated Bowman for Teacher of the Week wrote, 'She is creative and excellent at using real-life application while teaching.'

Bowman has taught for 31 years. The past 11 at San Jose Elementary as the gifted resource teacher.
