Mrs. Grace Downey

Mrs. Downey is so excited to be teaching third grade again this year! She began her journey with her BWF family in fourth grade, after moving from Nashville, where she was a second grade teacher. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Communication from Belmont University and later completed her Master of Education in Instructional Practice (K-5 and ESL). Mrs. Downey loves building strong relationships within her class to empower students as kind classmates, future leaders in our community, and lifelong learners. She can’t wait to learn, explore, and grow in new ways with her third grade students this year!


In honor of teaching third grade, here's three fun facts about Mrs. Downey:

1. Her first concert was the CMA Music Festival in fourth grade. She later worked for the Country Music Association (CMA) in Nashville while in college. She had so much fun working on the red carpet for the CMA Awards!

2. She had the most wonderful adventures in Switzerland, France, and Italy this past summer with her family!

3. Her and her husband have 2 adorable Shih Tzu dogs - Addie and Wookie!
