Master of Education in Elementary Education
Hello! My name is Sophia Downing and this is my third year at West View Elementary School. I am excited about the new school year because I love to teach and work with the community and staff at West View Elementary. In 2007, I graduated from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University with a Bachelor's degree in Journalism. In 2017, I graduated from Grand Canyon University with a Master's in Elementary Education. Children are our future and it is an honor to educate and encourage them every day.
