Mrs. Shelby Downing

Hey y'all! I'm so glad you're here. Some fun facts about me:

I grew up in Allen, Texas (I know...I'm a traitor!) as an Allen Eagle, then raced to Fort Worth as soon as I could to attend TCU. I am recently married to the love of my life as of June 2018. Some of my favorite activities are: reading and writing (a given), cooking, shopping, going to the latest restaurants in Dallas, attending a yoga class, traveling, seeing typically any kind of live music, and spending time with friends and family. I absolutely love country music, and your students probably know who my favorite artist is! I love to read and was pretty much a fluent reader by the time I was four. I grew up surrounded by books, and I would have rather read a book than play imaginary games! An old soul at heart, I guess you could say. I love memoirs and understanding where people come from and the lessons they can teach all of us. I enjoy reading about faith and various cultures. I love working with students, and it is my goal to get them to understand how important reading and writing are in our society today. It truly is a lost art! I appreciate parent contact and connection so much. Feel free to reach out if you ever have questions/concerns/comments. And, GO FROGS!
