In August of 2013, I started in NM Schools as the Elementary Counselor at Pleasant Hill Elementary. I graduated from St. Joseph's College with a degree in Elementary Education and taught second grade for 7 years. Upon relocating to the South Bend/Mishawaka area, I went back to school and received my master's degree in Counseling from IU South Bend and worked for WaNee Schools in Elkhart County as an Elementary Counselor before moving to the Indianapolis area. I am married to David and have four children, Colleen, Megan, Shannon and Harry who continue to keep me busy in my free time! I enjoy reading and traveling.

Hello! My name is Chad Downey, and I started teaching at Pleasant Hill Elementary in 2013 as the Music Teacher. I graduated from Indiana University with a Bachelor's in Music Education. After attaining my degree, I went on to work as the Graduate Assistant of Bands at Purdue University. I know... going from IU to Purdue was a tough decision, but a great one. Boiler Up! I gained invaluable experience conducting bands, running rehearsals, and performing my trumpet and singing in nearly every group I could. I am so excited to be here at Pleasant Hill Elementary and I can't wait to share my musical talents with my current and future students. I have high expectations for my students, and I look forward to being their teacher as they all grow as musicians and individuals. Chad Downey

It is hard to believe that August 2018, will mark the beginning of my 21st year in education. It is in fact true what they say about 'time flies when you are having fun'. Teaching is a second career for me. Before finishing my degree at Purdue in 1997, I worked as a paralegal and office manager. Although it took me a while to get to the classroom, the desire to teach was always in the back of my mind. I count it an honor and privilege to teach and be part of the team at Pleasant Hill.
