Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Connor Downs
I am an earth and space science teacher for Oswego East High School (OEHS). I was at Bremen High School and Reavis High School in the south suburbs of Chicago prior to getting hired at OEHS. I teach earth and space science and Environmental Science. I am the Head Girls Track and Field Coach as well as a Sophomore Football Coach.
I graduated from Illinois State University, Normal, in May 2013 with my undergraduate degree in earth and space science with certification to teach secondary education. I have endorsements in teaching junior high and biology as well. I am anxious to earn my master’s degree in the near future, and I look forward to furthering my education.
I became a teacher to help students as they try and find their way through high school. I like to mentor and help in any way possible, whether in science or any other subject area. I know that if I didn’t have teachers to look up to through school, I would have had a tough time making it through my education. I think that it is important that students have teachers they trust and seek guidance from, and I hope to be one of those teachers.
