Meet Mrs. Dowden ~ Third Grade Math Teacher
How long have you worked in the district what is your education background?
This is my 6th year teaching here at Walworth (5 years in 3rd Grade and 1 year in 4th). Prior to teaching at Walworth, I taught 2 years up in Coleman, Wisconsin (way up in northern Wisconsin).
I grew up in the Walworth area and actually attended Walworth and Big Foot High School for my schooling. After graduating from Big Foot, I went on to Beloit College where I got my Education Degree and played collegiate volleyball.

My family is made up of my husband, Mike and our 4 little girls who bring so much joy and happiness to our lives. Mr. Dowden is a math teacher at Big Foot High School and also coaches football and girls basketball there.
What activities do you enjoy outside of school?
Outside of school, I really enjoy…spending time with my family, coaching volleyball, and watching Home Improvement shows like Fixer Upper and Property Brothers.
What’s the best thing about working at Walworth Jt. District #1?
The community that supports and surrounds the school.
