Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Jon McGowan
My name is Jon McGowan and I am beginning my second year at South Smiths Station Elementary School. I have previously taught 3rd grade, 4th grade, and special education at East Smiths Station Elementary. I have also spent time at Smiths Station High School and at Sanford Middle School in Beauregard. I am proud to say that I have spent my entire career in education with the Lee County School System! I thoroughly enjoy the teachers, administrators, and students that I interact with on a daily basis.
I live in Auburn with my wife Meredith and our kids. My oldest is a senior at the University of Northern Colorado. Her name is Clara and she is 21 years old. She will be going to graduate school at Belmont University in Nashville this upcoming summer. Harper is my daughter in the 10th grade at Auburn High School. She is a very talented cross country and track runner for their team. She also loves her church group and friends at First Baptist Opelika. Next is Eva (who we call E.V.), she is a sixth grader at Drake Middle School in Auburn. She loves baton and is on a dance team at Rising Stars. Finally, our only boy, Charlie is in fourth grade at Wrights Mill Road in Auburn. He is a sports nut and loves to play all sports, especially baseball. We are all Auburn Tiger fans! We all are blessed to be a part of a great church family and are truly excited to see what God has planned for us every day!
