Leonia Bowman

My name is Leonia Bowman. I was born and raised in Walterboro, SC, but currently reside in Rock Hill, SC. I also have one daughter who is 5 years old, who is my pride and joy. I have been teaching since 2009. I graduated from USC-Upstate in 2008 with a BS degree in psychology with a minor in Early Childhood Education. I also have obtained my Masters in Education and Business Administration from Ashford University. During my free time I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, friends, and sorority (Delta Sigma Theta) sisters, and going on vacations. I am very excited to be part of the Riverwalk Family, and teaching children that they can do and be anything they want if they put their mind to it.

I have always had a passion for teaching and learning, and I love watching my students grow. A few of my favorite things include, coffee, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
