About Ms. Dowling

I began my teaching career in Boston, Massachusetts, then moved to St. Louis in 2017. I have been teaching high school science for 5 years. At Carnahan, I teach general and honors chemistry, and I collaborate with Ms. Garcia to teach the PLTW Biomedical Science pathway. In my courses, I treat students as real scientists and put an emphasis on group collaboration.
