Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Downing

I was born and raised a few hours from Summerfield in a town near Jacksonville, Florida, where I lived until I left to study at the University of Florida.  I graduated from UF with a Bachelors' of Science degree in zoology and, after working at the University, decided to shift gears to teaching.  This will be my first full year at Lake Weir Middle School, as I came in on February of last school year.  


My hobbies include playing ultimate frisbee, running, playing video games, watching football (Go Jags!), and traveling with my fiancee.  Animals are one of my favorite things to learn about, so you can expect that I will talk quite a bit about them throughout our time together.  Overall, I am looking forward to a great year and gettting to know you all better!
