• 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 16 years.  I love being a part of Sonoran Foothills teaching staff. This is my 6th 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 33nd 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 32 years and have 3 incredible sons.  Nick 29, is married and has an adorable son Marshall, my first grandbaby.  I love being  "Grammy D"!!! My middle son Taylor is 26, and "said I Do" in October 2019. My youngest son Matthew, 22, is engaged to his highschool sweetheart and hopefully will be getting married in September!!!!.  After the wedding and honeymoon, Matthew and Amanda will be moving to Nashville, so Amanda can start her new career with Mars Pet Division.  It is very bittersweet, not having them close to family, but I know this will be an amazing adventure for them to start their new life together.   The rainbow is  now we will have an excuse to take a trip to Nashville.  Matthew will be continuing his education in May 2021, in the medical field as a Physicians Assistant.
    I am looking forward to a fantastic year,
    Kim Downey
