Teresa Dowling's Biography

Hi, my name is Teresa Dowling and this will be my first year teaching at Brevard Academy. I will be teaching 5th grade math and science. I am looking forward to having a great year and enjoying my students.

I graduated from LaGrange College in LaGrange, Georgia in 1986. That same year, I started my teaching career at Hart County Junior High, in Hartwell, Georgia, teaching 7th and 8th grade. I have taught for 25 years and have enjoyed every minute of it.  While in Hartwell, I took graduate classes at Clemson University. Needless to say, I am a big Clemson fan.

I am married to Hank Dowling, and we moved to this area five years ago, now living in Etowah. I have two sons, Jason and Dustin Ramsey, one step-son, Kyle Dowling, and six beautiful grandchildren. Two of my granddaughters, Victoria and Lauren Ramsey currently attend Brevard Academy in the 4th and 2nd grade.

I have been a volunteer at Brevard Academy for the past two years and have enjoyed everything about the school. After getting to know the staff, teachers, and students, I decided I wanted to pursue employment at the school. I wanted to become part of this school community and be a Brevard Academy Bulldog. I was fortunate enough to be hired as a 5th grade teacher and I look forward to an exciting and fun filled year.
