Mrs. Julie Downs


     My name is Mrs. Julie Downs. I absolutely love teaching! Growing up to become a teacher was my childhood dream, and I'm very thankful to be able to do what I love each day. I earned my Associates degree in elementary education from Calhoun Community College in May 2011. I then went on to earn my Bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Athens State University in December 2013 where I graduated Cum Laude. I began my first year teaching fourth grade at F.E. Burleson in the Fall of 2014 and transferred to second grade in the Fall of 2015. I love second grade, and I am so proud to be a part of Hartselle City Schools!

     I am happily married to my husband Trent Downs. We have been married since October of 2016. We have one son named Sawyer who was born in October 2018, and he is our world. When I am not at school I enjoy Braves Baseball, vacationing at the beach, relaxing, shopping, and most of all spending time with my family.
