• Mrs. Kim Downey:

    Welcome to Kindergarten.  My goal for your child is to reach their highest potential through an environment of engaging activities, respect and a love of learning. I have been part of the DVUSD family for 18 years.  I love being a part of Sonoran Foothills teaching staff. This is my 8th year at SF.  Most of all, I'm looking forward to being a part of your child's 1st year of school.  My goal is to make  this year a happy and memorable one, so that your child will be excited about learning and discovering new things.
    I can't believe I am writing this, but this is my 35th year of teaching. I have a Master's in Education, in the area of reading.  I also have my endorsements in Early Education, English Language Learners and GIFTED. 
    I have been married to my wonderful husband  Brian for 35 years and have 3 incredible sons.  Nick is married and has two adorable sons, Marshall 3 years old and Henry 18 months. My middle son, Taylor is married and has one son, Zion 7 months. I love being "Grammy D"!!!  My youngest son Matthew and his wife live in Nashville, while he continues his education to become a Physician's Assistant. He will be graduating in August and returning to Phoenix in October.
    Now that I am an empty nester, I love to spend time with my family & friends.  Being with my grandbabies, cooking and enjoying  the outdoors.
    I am looking forward to a fantastic year,
    Kim Downey
