She was a cheerleader for 12 years, a ballet dancer for 18 years, and now is in her nineteenth year teaching. She has an identical twin sister and even taught famous rapper Post Malone when he was in high school.

Her name is Izzy Fowler, and she is the new on-level chemistry and physics teacher. Fowler came to Argyle from Grapevine Colleyville High School, where she also taught in the science department. She graduated from Texas A&M in 1999 and recently received her Master’s Degree from the University of Texas at Arlington.

“I love her personality, I love her drive, I love her passion for kids, and all those things put together make us very excited to have her on campus,” Principal John King said. “I think she brings a great deal of experience in the field of chemistry and physics.”

Fowler is known by students and staff for her fun personality and great sense of humor, and what separates her from most teachers is her relaxed presence and lively class atmosphere.

“She doesn’t get mad at people as easily,” sophomore Rachel Stepp said. “She’s very laid back and helpful.”

Although  Fowler has many unique aspects in her life, perhaps the most remarkable considering her career is how she viewed science in high school.

“I really wasn’t that good at science when I took it in high school,” Fowler said. “Yet, even if a kid isn’t very good at science, they could still become a teacher.”

Fowler is excited for another year doing what she loves: teaching science.                                        

“I’m most looking forward to learning how to do things, just getting to learn the kids a little bit more, and learn the community,” Fowler said.

Most people associate science classes with long lectures, confusing homework and boring notes, but for students of Izzy Fowler, learning science is interesting and fun.

“For some kids, physics, chemistry or science is just hard a subject,” King said. “Sometimes it can be a little bit of a dry subject, but I think her personality really brings the class to life.”
