What the school division said about this Excellent Educator: Christian Lowe has served in many roles, including math teacher, after-school detention and Saturday school facilitator, graduate school student, athletic coach, assistant athletic director, and mentor over his 18-year career. He is currently participating in our district’s Digital Teacher Leadership Cohort.

He strives to facilitate a learning environment that includes:

  • An environment where all students feel welcome and safe
  • Accommodations to various learning styles and preferences
  • Promoting 21st-Century skills, such as the proper use of technology paired with effective oral and written communication
