Mr. Gowan was my teacher in 9th grade for English/Literature in 1980-81. I am 51 years old,& attended a showing of "Hamlet" last night at a local theater. What I knew in 1980 about Mr. Gowan's teaching-that his enthusiasm for Shakespeare was such a gift to his students-came back to me as I took in this story for the first time,36 years after being in his class. A very belated thank you, Mr. Gowan, for the gift of your love for literature & beautiful way of sharing Shakespeare with your students.

Mr.Gowan is a great guy. He teaches the curriculum but also teaches about life and shares past experiences. Although he sometimes has freak outs, he's an overall great guy. I would recommend any of his classes to anyone.

I love love love love LOVE Mr Gowan! He was my teacher for Creative Writing 1 when I was a freshmen last year. He's funny, witty, and his class vibe is cool. He always is playing music of different cultures, sharing life stories, and exposing us to new things. He is one of the greatest teachers ive ever had.
