Mrs. Downey

Welcome to the Library!


I am your Librarian, Elaine Downey. I was a Houston Police Officer for eight years. I worked patrol for six years and investigations for two years.

I received a Bachelors degree from Sam Houston State University, Master of Arts from University Clear Lake, and a Masters in Education from University of North Texas. I have a Masters in Library Science from University of North Texas. I have state certification as a special education teacher and as a librarian. 

I have been married for 27 years and I have a nineteen year old son, Houston. I don't live on a farm but, you might think I should after you learn about my animals. I have my own petting zoo. I have an African Desert tortoise, fish, birds, and FOUR dogs. 

I am excited about a new school year at Borman! I am starting my fourteenth year at Borman.  We are going to have book fairs, Bluebonnet program, and many other fun activities in the library!
