Student Support Specialist- Mrs. McDowell
Hello, I am Teresa McDowell. I am a Student Support Specialist. Although I am licensed to teach first through eighth grade, I have mostly worked with students who need extra help in reading...and I LOVE it! I attended Ohio State Univ. and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Education. I began my teaching career with the Mansfield City Schools in Adult Education. Later I was offered a position as a Title 1 Teacher at Carpenter Elementary school. Soon thereafter, I was trained in reading intervention instruction at Ashland Univ. called Reading Recovery. I tell everyone that Reading Recovery was the best education I ever received! Later, I earned my Master’s Degree from Mount Vernon Univ. I have been with MCS for 27 years and I have met a lot of wonderful people. I have three beautiful children and five wonderful grandchildren. I am proud to be a teacher at Malabar Intermediate School! Go Tygers!
