Hello! My name is Timothy McDowell and I am the Principal at CAWB, with mentoring and support from Sister Gail Glenn.  

This is my 21st year in education. I have been a middle school and high school Science teacher for many years in Western Pennsylvania, as well as a lead teacher and department chair. For the past four years, I was the Middle school Science and Math teacher at Our Lady of Black Rock School, where I also served as acting Principal before the merger.

As principal, it is my responsibility to ensure a safe learning environment for all students, the academic rigor for the students' educations, and the development of moral character. The teachers and staff at Catholic Academy of West Buffalo are dedicated to these goals.
