About Mrs. Fowler

Professional

My name is Rania Fowler and this is my seventh year with the Perry Local Preschool Team.  I have 16 years teaching experience for Canton City Schools in kindergarten and preschool.  I accepted the preschool position in Perry in 2014 and I am thrilled to be a part of the Perry family.  

I received my undergraduate degree in 1998 from Kent State University in Early Childhood Education.  The program included child development and education courses and I was certified to work with children birth through eight years (3rd grade).

I then went on to Ashland University and earned my masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction in Early Childhood in 2005.

In 2011 I took coursework at Walsh University to add Early Childhood Intervention Specialist to my teaching license.  I can service children with special needs from three years to eight years.

I am a member of NAEYC, the National Association for the Education of Young Children, NAAEE, the North American Association for Environmental Education, and the Natural Start Alliance.

In the past I have particpated in a Reggio study group.  The Reggio Emilia approach to Early Childhood Education is widely recognized and replicated around the world.  I am inspired by the focus on building relationships and the importance of engaging environments, the emphasis of following children's interests and working as a facilitator of learning.  Currently I participate in a newly formed Ohio group of early childhood professionals focusing on nature based education.  Teaching children about and in nature is vital for their healthy growth and development in all areas (socially and emotionally, intellectually and physically).

Lastly, I enjoy sharing my passion for early childhood education with others.  I was part of a team that facilitated science and math workshops for local teachers at Malone University.  I also am an Ohio Approved, independent trainer for other early childhood professionals.  I have worked through the Early Childhood Resource Center developing and offering courses related to connecting young children to nature, loose parts, and schemas in young children's play.

I absolutely love what I do.  It is my privilege to work with you and your children.

 

Personal

I have been married to my husband Kevin for 21 years.  We have two children; Isaac is 19 years old and Camille is 15 years old.  We have a cat Francis and a dog Darcy.  Our son is a junior at Kent State University and is studying computer science and engineering.  I enjoy watching him play soccer.  Our daughter is a sophmore and I enjoy watching her run cross country and perform in the band.  I love to take walks and go hiking, work in my flower gardens, bake, read and research.  This summer we traveled to our back yard to relax! :)  We have a large extended family and we get together with them safely during this Pandemic.
