About Ms. Dowd

As a teacher librarian, I am here to support all students by teaching lessons, equipping students with tools to evaluate and access information, promoting literacy, managing the library collection, and more. But, one of my favorite parts of my job is getting to read and talk about books! Outside of school, I love reading (of course!), watching Netflix (if you have any shows to recommend, please let me know), going to my family’s cabin in Arnold, and shopping!
