Owen says, “I am a graduate of Norwood Public Schools. Travel, tourism, culture, and geography have been passions of mine since I was little. I lived in Ireland for nearly three years. I love playing and watching all sports, especially basketball. The Boston pro teams and Notre Dame are my favorites. Other interests include outdoor activities and photography. I’ve enjoyed working with kids of all ages in tutoring, teaching, coaching, and mentoring positions. My strengths include patience, empathy, listening skills, and attention to detail. Above all, I want to show students and all whom I work with that they are creative, intelligent, important people- we all matter!”
