About the Teacher

Dear Parents and Students,


Welcome to Second Grade!  My name is Wendy McDowell and I am thrilled to be your teacher for the upcoming year.  Our room number is #702.  My excitement about this year is growing by leaps and bounds.  I believe what happens in this classroom will affect your child’s future.  Your child’s time here will be well spent.

I am a proud product of the Carrollton City School system.  My years as a student began at City Kindergarten and continued all the way to Carrollton High School.  I graduated from the University of West Georgia in 1997 with a Bachelors Degree in Education and from Piedmont College in 2001 with a Masters Degree and again in 2010 with a Specialist Degree in Education. I also hold my gifted education certification.  My teaching career began in 1997.  I have been at CES since 2005.  I possess a wide variety of experience.  I have taught kindergarten, second grade, third grade, and was a gifted resource teacher for kindergarten – third grade.  My passion lies in challenging the young minds of precious second graders.  I believe it is such a wonderful time in a child's life.  

As you can see I am a HUGE Georgia fan.  I have even been know to attend Football Camp for Women at UGA!!  

We have a fantastic group of children in this class.  I am looking forward to a terrific year ahead.  With your help we can make it happen.
