Degrees and Certifications:

Kira Lowery


I am Ms. Lowery and will be teaching Chemistry this year at Johnson High School. This year, 2021-2022, will be my 6th year teaching! I graduated from The University of Texas with a B.S. in Biology and emphasis on Microbiology. I also completed the UTeach Natural Sciences teacher certification program for 7th-12th Grade Composite Science. I have taught lessons in Middle School Science, Biology, Environmental Science, Biochemistry, and Physics.

During my time at UT Austin I was a Senior Preceptor for the tutoring center on campus as well as Mentor for those in the UTeach Natural Sciences program. I also have experience in microbiology research and health professions. In the Fall of 2017 I was able to join a program called UTeach Maker to learn more about the Maker Movement and to start incorporating making into my classroom curriculum. Being part of the UTeach Maker program has been inspirational and has provided me with experiences to spread to my fellow educators and students.

In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with my Husband and my 3 kitties! I enjoy playing video games, hanging outside and love to binge watch crime shows. Can't wait to get to know you this year!
