Mrs. Stephanie Dowd


I truly believe first grade is a magical year. 6 and 7-year-olds have a natural curiosity that leads to a love of learning and makes my job so fun. You will be amazed at how much they will grow this year. It’s the best part of my job! This is my 18th year teaching first grade at Allenwood. I feel so lucky to get to spend my days with your wonderful children. This year I am happy to be team teaching with Ms. Tompkins. We are ready to rock the 2022-2023 school year! 


I grew up in Wall and live in the Allenwood area. I am married to my wonderful husband, Tim, for 14 years. We have 3 children. Ella is in 7th grade at Wall Intermediate. Mason is 7 and in second grade at Allenwood. My youngest, Gavin, started Kindergarten at Allenwood this year. He tries to keep up with his big sister and brother. Gavin doesn’t let much stop him from hanging with the big kids! I love that I get to experience both sides as a parent and a teacher at this school.


Spending time with my family is my favorite thing to do. We love to go to the beach together.
