Kim Downey became a lead second grade teacher in 2020 after serving as a second grade associate at Columbus Academy since 2014. She is also Second Grade Team Leader. Prior to joining Academy, Kim worked at New Albany Montessori School for four years. Outside of work, Kim and her husband Craig enjoy spending time supporting their five kids (Joey, Hannah, Josh, Will and Tyler) in their school and sports activities as well as time spent with the family’s two cats, Walker and Spanky. In addition, Kim and her family often spend time with extended family, especially during the fall centered around Ohio State football games and beach vacations in the summer to Emerald Isle, N.C.

Kim’s favorite thing about Columbus Academy
“I love Academy for its sense of community among teachers, parents and students alike.  There is a sense of generosity, respect, and support for everyone that is part of CA.”
