Kimberly Downing

I am married to Stuart, and we have three amazing children: Alissa is 15, Lucas is 12, and Kaleb is 6. When not working, I love to read books in the sunshine, cook for my family, ride my bicycle, exercise, camp, and hike outdoors. My professional passions are focused on STEAM education, educational technology, brain research, child psychology, and increasing awareness of and addressing mental health concerns of students. My dream is to one day own an outdoor camp, spend all day with children, and focus on building character, cultivating community, and pursuing passions.
