We are Clint and Alyson Dowda, a teaching couple in Northeast Tennessee. We have been married since 2003 and have been teaching since 2005. Clint lucked into a job teaching 5th grade and has been there ever since. He has been self-contained and departmentalized. Currently he is teaching science and social studies. I taught 5th grade math and writing for 3 years, then taught Kindergarten for 5 years. Now I am teaching 3rd grade math. Between the two of us we have lots of great teaching experiences that we are excited to share!
Outside of school, as if that's really a thing, we enjoy being active with our church and working with the youth. Clint enjoys running and I love to cook and scrapbook. We have two dogs which came as a compromise because Clint is a cat person and I am a dog person ... not the same kind of compromise I taught my Kindergartners!
