McGowan worked as a teacher from 1957 to 1980. In the interview, McGowan discussed her experiences as a special education teacher at Union School and Lincoln Junior High School in Mankato, Minnesota. She focused on her life and career, students, administrators, parents, teacher organizations, mainstreaming and how her expectations remained constant throughout her years of educating students.
