My name is Justin Ballard. My teaching career has spanned over 17 years. I have experience teaching second through fifth grade. I received my masters in administration and am currently utilizing that degree through the Dean of Students role here at Windsor. In addition to being the Dean, I am also an Instructional coach, dedicated to guide and assist teachers in their own learning and growth.
Outside of school, I love spending time with my wife and two boys. My boys are 17 and 19. (For my own safety, I will not disclose the age of my wife). I enjoy fishing, my dogs, reading, and riding my bike.
Nurse Bennett has been a nurse at Windsor for 11 years and a school nurse for 25. She is from northwest Iowa. She graduated from University of Iowa’s nursing program in 1984. She is married with 3 grown children, all who went to Windsor. When not working, she loves to walk, play golf and spend time in Okoboji, Iowa where she grew up. She is a Hawk fan!
My name is Lynn Bowen. I’m a graduate of the University of Northern Iowa with a master’s degree from Viterbo. This year I am serving Windsor as an instructional coach and an academic interventionist for kindergarten and first grade. This is my 14th year teaching at Windsor. About half of that time I taught first grade and the other half has been spent coaching and working with teachers. This year I am really excited to also work with kindergarten and first grade students in my role as interventionist!
In my spare time I like to hang out with my husband, Chris, our two kids, Hadley (age 9) and Henry (age 7), and our puppy Phoebe. I also enjoy reading, running, biking and volunteering at our church.
