Welcome to junior high and welcome to my OUR 7th grade English Language Arts and Reading class.
I am Ms. Downs. I earned my undergraduate degree from Southwest Texas State University (aka: Texas State University) and a Master's Degree from Lubbock Christian University. I have been in education for many years and have worn several hats. My favorite education hat has always been as a classroom teacher where I am able to share my love of children's literature and just be with kids!
My favorite personal hat is my Mommy hat. I have an 8 year old daughter who will be a third grader at Navarro Elementary.
My favorite things involve spending time with my daughter. Some of our favorite activities are going fishing along the Geronimo Creek going to Schlitterbahn and going to the beach.
I am looking forward to a fabulous year.
