Meet the Teachers
Teacher and Student
Mrs. Lee Ann Ewert

This is my seventeenth year teaching at Stowell, my fifteenth year teaching first grade. I love teaching first grade, and math and science are my favorite subjects. Previously, I worked seven years in the Parents As Teachers program and three years as a preschool teacher. My undergraduate degree is in Early Childhood Education from HLGU and my Masters degree is in Curriculum Development from Southwest Baptist University. I live in Hannibal with my husband, Paul. We have five children and thirteen grandchildren. I enjoy reading, hiking, and spending time with family.

Mrs. Kyley Adams

This is my seventh year teaching and my third year at Stowell. I previously taught kindergarten for two years at New London Elementary and preschool for two years at the Early Childhood Center in Hannibal. I received my bachelor's degree in early childhood education at Hannibal-LaGrange University, along with my master's degree in literacy. My husband Tyler and I have been married for 3 years and welcomed our sweet son Waylon into the world this summer. I enjoy spending time with friends and family, reading, and decorating!
