• Mrs. Kim Downey:

    Welcome to Kindergarten.  My goal for your child is to reach their highest potential through an environment of caring, respect and a love of learning. I have been part of the DVUSD family for 17 years.  I love being a part of Sonoran Foothills teaching staff. This is my 7th 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 34nd 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 33 years and have 3 incredible sons.  Nick is married and has an adorable son Marshall, my first grandbaby.  I love being  "Grammy D"!!! My middle son Taylor is married and lives locally.  My youngest son Matthew and his wife live in Nashville, while he continues his education to become a Phyician's Associate.
    Now that I am an empty nester, I love to spend time with my family & friends.  Baby sit Marshall, cook, and enjoy the outdoors.
    I am looking forward to a fantastic year,
    Kim Downey
