Who is Mrs. Dowdy?

 

Mrs. Dowdy is a mommy of 3 darling kids--Kaitlyn 9, Lucy 9, and Teddy 7.  I am a wife of an amazing man and fellow educator, Mr. Dowdy and I am a dedicated educator.  I have been teaching for 14 years now.  Wow!  How time flies when you are having fun!

I grew up in Fountain Valley, California. Some might call it "A Nice Place To Live" and I would agree with them as I still live there now.  As a child, I loved playing school and always knew that I wanted to be a teacher.

After graduating from Mater Dei High School I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to attend Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. To this day, I still believe that that area is the prettiest place on earth.  I majored in Liberal Studies, with a minor in Science and Math. Following those four years, I decided to stay in San Luis Obispo for one more year to get my teaching credential.

Thirteen years ago, I moved back to Orange County and started teaching 7th and 8th grade science and math at Ensign Intermediate School in NMUSD. During that time I attended Cal State, Fullerton and received my masters in Educational Leadership, along with my Tier 1 Administrative Credential because when I grow up I want to be an elementary school principal. I loved teaching at Ensign, but I wanted to try something new. I moved to the district office and coordinated the BTSA program.  This is a program designed to support teachers in their first two years of teaching.  I also received my Tier 2 Administrative Credential during that time.   Last year I was so excited to become a part of the amazing teaching staff at Davis Magnet School as a third grade teacher. I also started teaching math and science methodology classes for UCLA Extension.  Last year was awesome, but I think this year might be even better!

When I am not teaching I love spending time with Mr. Dowdy and the kids.  The kids are into soccer, softball, baseball, swimming, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Indian Maidens.  I love every minute of watching them develop into incredible individuals.  As for myself, I like to run!  I am currently training for a half marathon in Vegas in December, one in Phoenix in January, and one in Huntington Beach in February.  It is going to be a busy, but super 2013-2014 school year!
