Hello! My name is Krista Dowell. I am so excited to begin my 8th year teaching at G.C Burkhead Elementary! This year will be my 3rd year teaching Kindergarten. I am a graduate of Western Governor's University with a degree in Elementary Education. I continued on to receive my Master's degree from WGU as well.

I am married to Jason Dowell, and I'm the mother of three great children, Justin, SIerra and Ava Grace. Justin and Sierra are in college and Ava Grace is in preschool. ( I know, it sounds crazy, but I love it:) I am very family oriented and enjoy spending every possible minute creating lasting memories with my husband and children.

I have a true love of children, which led me to my career choice of being a teacher. I look forward to starting a new school year and getting to know my new students and their families. My goal is to help each student reach his/her potential so they can have a successful year in Kindergarten.
