Dr. Owens provides unending support and encouragement to all her staff members. She epitomizes what it means to be a leader! She's simply the best!
Dr. Owens is truly accepting of many of her staff's quirky personalities. I'm definitely proof of that. On the day I was hired, Dr. Owens kept it real; she didn't act any different then than she does now. I know if I have a problem, I can go to her. She genuinely cares about the students and her staff at Alcovy High School.
Dr. Owens has an incredible "open door" policy, and will listen even when she's probably too busy or exhausted for any interruptions. Everyday isn't perfect and everyone isn't the friendliest on a day to day basis, but she treats everyone with the same respect. That in my opinion, embodies good leadership.
Dr. Owens is by far one of the best Principals I have had the opportunity to work for. Her support is amazing.
We love our Mama Tiger.
It is an honor to serve as a teacher under a principal that supports her teachers without equivocation. Thanks for your dedication to the children, faculty, staff and community that are apart of, and surround, AHS. You are a phenomenal leader!
I have known Dr. Owens for years now, and yet I knew right upon first meeting her that she would be ideal for Alcovy. Her leadership has been just what Alcovy needed to improve and develop. When I had the opportunity to decide whether to teach Latin at AHS or another school in the county, I chose AHS because of Dr. Owens, and that's a choice which I have not regretted.
I say all of this despite Dr. Owens still not having provided me with the Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, or even the super-yacht that she has been promising me for ages now.
For me, I was ready to go back to subbing or not teach at all after my first year. Dr. Owens found me trying to sub and told me "No you're not doing that; you are going to come work for me". I have never looked back. The difference in my first year of teaching and what I have encountered here is night and day. I could not imagine working for anyone else than Dr. Owens. She has been way more supportive than I could have hoped for in a boss. I would not trade her. She is a big part of why I say that on most days teaching does not feel like a job to me.
Dr. Owens has been a exemplary leader from the moment she entered as Principal. She is supportive, kind, but fearless and resilient, too. Thanks, Mama Tiger!
Dr. Owens called me in late one night to interview and hired me in a time in my life when I really needed a change and to be closer to my kids. From day one, she has been nothing but supportive and caring. Through my illness the first year, family deaths and general times of sorrow, she has been there to support me with caring and compassion. I love working for Dr. Owens and at Alcovy. After 12 years of being in the middle school, I never thought I would be back in high school, but I am so glad she called me and allowed be to join the Tiger Pack!
I spent 6 years at a school I loved, but chose to move to a school closer to my home and found myself miserable. After jumping ship from that school and another the year after, I landed at Alcovy and Dr. Owens is a huge reason as to why I am still here. She respects her teachers, prioritizes keeping the school safe (in an age where sending kids to a hearing seems to be a reason punish school systems), and she loves the kids here. Support and respect for your teachers can make all the difference and Dr. Owens does just that. Proud to be tiger working under the Mama Tiger.
Thank you, Dr. Owens, for all you do for your staff! We appreciate your fairness, frankness, and your frequent words of encouragement.
Dr. Owens has stood behind me from the beginning. She is one the many reason that I want to stay at Alcovy.
Dr. Owens is one of the best administrators I have had the privilege to work under. She is honest, fair and caring. Her leadership makes it great to be a tiger!
I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Owens as an educator and a school resource officer. She promotes the personal development of professionals and students, alike. She is an excellent team builder, consistently encouraging and undergirding everyone in her sphere of influence. I am honored that she chose me to be part of the family, here at Alcovy.
I love Dr. Owens professionalism and her personality. Keep up the good work Mama-Tiger
