I am Deana Cowan, Curriculum and Assessment Coordinator, at Topeka High. I have worked in Topeka Public Schools since 1991 as an English teacher at Hope Street Academy and Highland Park High School, as well as being a Literacy Coach at Highland Park and Topeka High before becoming the Curriculum and Assessment Coordinator. My husband and I live on a cattle ranch in Wabaunsee county and have a son who graduated from Kansas State with an Animal Science degree and a daughter who will soon graduate from K-State with an Elementary Education degree. We love K-State football and basketball and going to movies. When I am not tailgating or at the movie theater, I am probably curled up with a good book.
