Dr. MaryZoe Bowden has taught something in every grade level from pre-K through 12th grade at the same independent school where she worked for over 20 years, and she has served as an adjunct professor at the college level. Although she is primarily an English teacher, she initiated a chicken program at her school and could be seen carrying baby goats in a bucket into her classroom for weeks at a time. MaryZoe believes that we are called to help others to recognize and actualize their dignity, charity, and obligation to fill the world with beauty and joy. It is easy to see, then, why she loves teaching, writing, and all living things. MaryZoe and her husband Bill have six adult children, two of whom have young children and live close by, one of whom is a nun in Spain, and the rest of whom they are gently prodding towards marriage in hopes of additional grandchildren. Some years ago she and Bill created a small hobby farm as a petting zoo for their future grandchildren. Her two granddaughters can now be found outside with MaryZoe tending to her fruit trees, watering her garden, or bottle feeding one of their baby goats. At the moment the grandchild count is 2.75 (one due soon), and the critter count is 2 cats, 2 dogs, 6 goats, and 50+ chickens. She’s hopeful her grandkid count will one day catch up!
