Maureen Dowling, Spanish Teacher



My name is Maureen Dowling and I am an ELL teacher at Roosevelt High School.  This will be my 11th year as a Teddy.  I taught Spanish for my first 8 years at Roosevelt as part of both the World Language Program and Immersion Program.  I’m excited to be going into my third year on the EL team.  I mostly work with newcomer students and co-teach Science Concepts and 9th grade Physical Science with Matt Abbott and English 1A and B with Antonia Dempsey.

Growing up in a bilingual, bicultural family has shaped who I am both personally and professionally.  My mother is from Chile, and she (and my father!) raised my younger brothers and me to not only embrace our Chilean heritage, but to take pride in it and celebrate it.  I believe this is why Roosevelt feels like home to me.  We truly are a school community that embraces the diverse backgrounds of our students and encourages them to take pride in who they are and where they come from.

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year.  I look forward to working with your student(s)!
