Ms. McDowell

I am thrilled to return to the Echo Lake Community this year! I have been a part of Shoreline for over 20 years and have most recently taught second grade here. I have been a Reading Specialist for the District and have taught 2nd-5th grades over the years. I am very excited to return to teaching third grade!
My motto in my classroom, in my own life, and with my own children is always "Are you doing your best?" I look forward to doing my best in Room 50 this year and to helping kids get the best out of themselves.
I grew up in Pasco, WA and moved to Seattle to attend the University of WA where I got an English degree and an Elem Education minor and soon after, my MA degree. I also swam there for four years and have been able to share my love of the sport with Shorewood High School, having been a Girls' Swim coach there since 1989. So go Huskies and T-Birds! I have a son attending Santa Clara University this Fall and a daughter entering Shorewood High School. I am looking forward to a great year!
