Miss Margie Downer

My name is Margie Downer and I am a fourth grade teacher at St. Anthony of Padua Elementary School. I have spent my entire teaching career, the past 35 years, here at St. Anthony.  I love what I am doing and where I am doing it!!!

I attended St. Adalbert Grade School.  I graduated from West Catholic High School, and obtained my Teaching Degree from Aquinas College.  I received my Master's Degree in Education from Grand Valley State University.  I am a member of the Basilica of St. Adalbert Parish where I also serve as the Director of Religious Education.

I am a loyal Michigan State Spartan fan.  My blood runs green!!!!  I'm also a Tigers and Cubs fan.  Coming from a large family (I have 9 siblings, 16 nieces and nephews, 36 great-nieces and nephews, and 11 great-grandnieces and nephews) there is always something happening in the family, and chances are there is laughter, food, fishing, or card playing involved!!  I also enjoy doing puzzles and traveling around the beautiful state of Michigan!!
