This man made band one of the best things in the world.
Has a very long story for every situation. "I promise I wont be that long (Collective groan from everyone)" :P
Two faced. Unsupportive. Spineless gossip. Needs to retire.
He cows to the strongest student personality. Doesn't reprimand "popular" kids. Doesn't support elected student band officers, instead listens intently to gossip which he LOVES. Hard worker though.
OMG!!!!!!!!! The Godfather!!! mr.downey is the sweetest guy EVER!!!! he's awesome and idk where u guys get off saying that mr.downey plays too much and offends people because he DOESNT! he is nice and very caring and a SUPER Great teacher!!!!!!!!!!<3
Sometimes he doesn't start class on time he is always behind he has a tendency to pick on his students in a playful way and then gets offended when the students return the action. Sometimes he doesn't know when to stop and offends some students his lack of preparedness is also a bit unprofessional overall he is a good teacher who could use some work.
BIG PAPPA DOWNEY! What can i say HE ROCKS! He's a cool cat lol!! That man is soo out of it sometimes though! lol
Mr. Downey is the coolest director I've ever had and I'm not even in High School yet! I had him in sixth grade and he was really cool!!!!!
Mr. Downey is one of my favorite band directors. He is always very helpful to me. Even when he is mad at you and is Ranting, and raving and the vein in his head is bulging he usally cant stay mad at you for long....YOU ROCK COACH D ;)
Mr. Downey is AWESOME!!! he's a great teacher and a fantastic mentor. He's concerned about his students 24/7, and he's not just a director but more of a friend. we love you mr. downey keep up the good work!
Lazy teacher dosn't start class on time very nice but can have a temper at times. He's very forgetful and you remind him to do stuff in class ALL the time.
Downey is an interesting case. As a teacher he is incredible, I learn so much. The problem with him is that he tends to make overly personal attacks.
Mr. Downey, your a cool guy, but make sure your motivating the band, especially the officers, and the section leaders who are doing ther best to do a good job.
Downey has a definite edge about him; Problems? He'll help. He rocks.
I would never trade mr. downey or mr. hicks for a different band teacher in the world. I'm really gonna miss Hicks if he leaves.
Mr.D is awesome he's always there when you need someone to talk to just go in his office and shut the door if there are peps in there kick them out!!!
mR. dOWNEY ROX MY SOX! dO da! dO dA! mR. dOWNEY ROX MY SOX! OOOOO DO DA DAY!!!!!
Keep up the good work Mr. Downey...YOU'RE GRRRREEEAAATT!! haha...like the tiger!!
Mr. D is such a nice teacher! I think he's out there to help the students... unlike some other directors who shall remain nameless. :o!
Tries to be professional but fails miserably and it shows- his speeches go on until you hear crickets
You are awesome at any sitution i have seen you handle and i like that you expect a lot out of us because it really helps eveyone see how things should be.
His calm, cool nature is what makes this band run so smoothly. There isn't a problem he can't handle. I probably have a lot to learn from him.
No really he could be the coolest teacher is school. He is alot better that Mr. Hicks at teaching. Mr. Downey is like, well he is the BEST!!! TIGHT KID!!!!!
Mr.Downey is a very good teacher he is helpful and nice and he is way nicer than Mr.Hicks.
Downey is aweseome! He's funny, laid-back, but still expects a lot out of you, which makes you feel good. Altogether a cool guy.
Downey rocks when his heart isn't exploding due to certain band/falculty members. Gald he's one my teachers I've had for..5 years total
Don't act up TOO much, and it's a breeze... Very easygoing, fun guy.
