Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Don Downey

This is my 23rd year of teaching.  I have resided mainly in Texas ( and yes, am a Texan), but did teach for 5 years in Arizona.  I enjoy the outdoors and doing activities with my family.  I enjoy watching all children learn and grow in many ways.  I truly have high expectations for all children.  I have 2 children- a daughter- out and about working, and a son who is just starting college.   I enjoy travelling and being able to explore new sights and locations.
