Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Christen Rowland

I was born and raised here in Moore, Oklahoma. I come from a very large family of 8 brothers/sisters. I married my wonderful husband in 2012 and we now have 4 beautiful children in our household.  I graduated from Westmoore High School back in 2004, following which I went to Oklahoma City University and majored in Cell and Molecular Biology. While at OKCU I was on academic scholarship and I was on a sport scholarship for Rowing. One of the best experiences in life. Rowing allowed me to compete and travel across the country while gaining my Bachelor's degree. I graduated from OKCU in 2008 and proceeded to go to University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (yes a UT school, it nearly killed my father) from which I graduated in 2010 with my Master's degree in Cancer Biology. I returned to Oklahoma and continued to work in research for almost a year before realizing that my real passion in life was teaching. In 2011, I went through the certification process to get my Oklahoma Teacher's certification and began teaching in August 2011. I will begin my 10th year teaching now and am very excited to be at my home roots and teach where it all began for me.
