About Mr. Lowe
Mr. Lowe follows the life of Cal Lowe, a new fourth-grade teacher who constantly discovers that real life does not seem to mirror his ideals.
MR. LOWE: Cal Lowe has never taught before and has no credentials whatsoever. He is hired as part of an emergency certification program to fill a teacher shortage. His ineptitude in the classroom is only matched by his optimism and determination to do well by his students. Though every attempt to gain control of his classroom fails, he never gives up trying.
QUENTIN: Quentin is a student in Mr. LoweÕs fourth grade class, along with his twin sister Shanika. He abounds with energy and constantly pushes Mr. Lowe to see where his limits are. Outside of class, he is a budding filmmaker. Despite assurances otherwise, he is convinced he was named after Quentin Tarrantino.
SHANIKA: Shanika is a student in Mr. Lowe's class with her twin brother Quentin. Though she is very bright and highly motivated (she is already planning where sheÕs going to college), her loud mouth and boisterous attitude sometimes get her in trouble.
ABIGAIL: Cal's friend Abigail frequently meets with him at the local coffee house to talk about his troubles in the classroom.
GUS: Cal's roommate Gus is, like, totally into extreme sports and is always seeking a greater adrenaline rush.
MS. STICKLER: Ms. Stickler is the firm but loving principal of Mr. LoweÕs school.
MR. BROWN: Mr. Brown is a veteran teacher who is serving as a mentor to Mr. Lowe.
