Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Kimberly McDowell

I was born in Augusta, GA and raised in Martinez.  I graduated from Evans High School.  I received my Bachelor of Arts in Education from Augusta College and my Masters in Professional Learning Communities from Grand Canyon University.  I have been a teacher for the past 27 years.  I began my career in Jefferson County at Carver Elementary in Wadley, GA.  Later I transferred to Richmond County where I have worked at Ursula Collins Elementary and Glenn Hills Elementary.  I am happy this year to be on the team at Blythe Elementary again working with the fabulous Mrs. King! 

I have an 19 year old son, Cameron, who is in college this year.  I have a cat named Olive Ann.  I love to bake, cook, and do art  projects in my spare time.  I also enjoy reading.  I am an active member of Stevens Creek Community Church.

I enjoy teaching and watching children reach their potential!  I want the best for all of my students so that they can achieve their dreams. Achievement comes through hard work and effort!  I expect all of my students to give their best effort in third grade.

I look forward to getting to know each of you and working with you this year!
