Shannon Dowdy
Advisor

I am the advisor of the Pirate’s Anchor and the Journalism teacher here at Highline. I have been teaching here for eight years and I am a Burien resident. Journalism is important to me because young people need a source of information that is produced by people their age. Additionally, a free press is important to a democratic nation and for people to be involved and informed about their community.  I really enjoy attending club and sporting events to see students doing what they love outside of an academic environment. I also have started boxing in the last two years and really love how active it is and how supportive the coaches are. I have a wonderful dog who is 14 years old and his name is Anny. The family that lives close is my aunt and we usually have dinner on Sundays.
