Welcome to Mrs. McDowell Classroom
I have been working with preschool/head start age students for 13 years now. I have been a special needs aide, daycare worker, substitute, and teacher. I have a bachelors in Interdisciplinary Early Childhood Education from Morehead State University, a Masters in Elementary Education from University of the Cumberland, and a Masters in Special Education:Learning Behavior Disorders. I live with my husband, Nathan and have four wonderful step-children Nathan (16), Natalie (14), Dakotah (12), and Caitriona (9).
In our classroom our Instructional Assistant is Michelle Bonifer. She was new to our program for half of last year and we welcome her back to our room. She is always great with the children and families.
The parent assistants in the classroom are Alyssa Morrison and Linda Goodwin.
