Molly was born in Indiana and spent most of her adolescence in the sunshine state of Florida. At the age of 12 her family moved to Stroud, OK, where her parents still live.
Molly attended Oklahoma State where she graduated with a degree in Elementary Education. During this time in Stillwater, OK is where she met her husband, John Dowdell. John is also in the Catholic Education community as the Principal at San Miguel Middle School. Molly and John have been married for 13 years and have 3 boys that will attend St. Pius X in the Fall: Jason in 6th grade, Tommy in 5th grade, and Luke in 2nd grade.
This will be her 11th year in education, teaching 2nd grade for the past 6 years at Holy Family. "I am very excited to join the St. Pius X community! I am looking forward to teaching and getting to know St. Pius students of all grade levels! I am also excited to start a Cross Country team!"
She and her family are avid outdoor enthusiasts, biking, hiking, camping - anything in nature! Molly enjoys getting cozy with any good book, especially mystery novels and listening to The Avett Brothers.
St. Pius X is very excited to have Mrs. Dowdell and her family at our school! Her warm personality and years of experience will fit in just perfectly. Welcome to the family Molly and can't wait for the Fall semester to begin!
