Mrs. Tracy Downey
Welcome to Health Science!
I believe that teaching Health Science is the perfect culmination of my life experiences. I have beeen a Registered Nurse for 25 years and worked in many different settings ranging from inpatient hospital, outpatient clinics and as a school nurse. I also have a BA in Psychology from Emory University and over 30 years of experience working with children and adolescents both in the medical field and in education. I feel classroom experiences should teach our students not only subject matter but also life skills to guide them to become kind, productive and innovative adults. I love getting to know my students and watching them grow throughout each school year! On a more personal note, my husband and I have been together for 28 years and we have 2 awesome daughters and one crazy dog - I am excited to start our 2020-21 school year and my 4th year as a Pirate!
