Kristen McDowell


My name is Kristen McDowell and I am a special education teacher at PCHS! I'm entering my fourth year as a special educator and my second as a Platte County Pirate. I'm looking forward to working with you and your student this school year. 

A little bit about me: I'm looking forward to getting married in the summer of 2019. I have a black goldendoodle named Red who takes up a lot of my free time! I coach club volleyball at KC Power and I will be with the 12's this year. 

I graduated in 2015 from Webster Unversity and started my teaching career in the fall of 2015. Alongside teaching, I have been coaching volleyball since 2012 at various levels from varsity to youth club. This year I will be the head coach for Middle School Volleyball and the Freshman Girls Basketball B coach for the high school.


My class schedule for the 2018-2019 School Year is as follows: 

1st Hour: Plan

3rd Hour: life Skills

4th Hour: Practical Math

5th Hour: Co-taught English Language Arts I
