Ms. Cowell is L-SHS Teacher of the Quarter
Health and physical education teacher Faith Cowell has been selected by Lampeter-Strasburg High School faculty and staff as Teacher of the Quarter for the third marking period of the 2018-2019 school year. Ms. Cowell’s first coaching position was as junior high cheerleading coach, but she quickly moved on to coach sports as high school girls’ basketball assistant, track & field throwing coach and high school varsity field hockey coach. She was instrumental in getting the Pioneer Challenge low ropes course built and the program implemented in high school physical education classes. She also acted as Health & PE department leader for many years and organizes the annual Flex Volleyball Tournament for juniors and seniors. Ms. Cowell has been teaching at L-SHS for 31 years. She is originally from Harleysville, PA.
"It is an honor to work with my colleagues to help the students at L-SHS figure out where they want to go in life," said Ms. Cowell. "The lessons they learn and the work ethic they develop are merely stepping stones in their lives, because as Dr. Seuss says, 'You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...'"
Ms. Cowell currently teaches Health/PE 9 as well as Life Team & Individual Sports, and Fitness & Recreation Activities classes. She enjoys reading, walking/hiking, golf, pickleball, geocaching and traveling and resides in Lancaster with her spouse, Kay, and dog Clementine.
