I had Mr. Downie years ago but I still remember his classes clearer than any others. His exams were easy if you studied, he was always willing to go over material on his free time, and really cared about his students. He's one of the only teachers I still go back to visit several years after graduating.

He is nice, but doesn't give clear instructions on papers. I sat down with him to get help on a rewrite, did everything he told me, and still got a C. He found out I complained and the next day made me act out the crucifixion scene from Old Man and The Sea in front the whole class. I had to request a new teacher for the next semester.

He is a very kind man, but it seems that he really hasn't sorted out what he wishes to teach yet. he will be phenomenal when he knows how he wants to control and configure his class.

He was by far the best english teacher that I have ever had. In fact, I don't remember any others. He was always very kind and NEVER innapropriate.

Mr. Downie is the first teacher that I like more as a person than a teacher. He's a great guy, and weird in the best way.

He's a tough teacher, and advanced sophomore English is only "easy" if you don't have him.

He is very easy- as far as grading-- but he is mean- unless you are in his wrestling program-Wheaton North has far too much of this athletic easiness practice!

He is by far one of the coolest wheaton north teachers. He is just a cool guy who treats you like your the same age and not a worthless student like some do.
