Ms. Downing posing as a Super HeroI am the Mathematics teacher at Connections Learning Center (CLC) in Golden, CO. In addition to learning math, we are also focused on making connections to the real world with authentic learning. I feel it is important for students to feel confident in their ability to do math by allowing them to also be creative. You may have tasted our cookies at parent-teacher conferences! Yum!

Before moving to Gunnison, Colorado to go to school at Western State Colorado University to obtain my Bachelors in Secondary Mathematics, I was born and raised in Jefferson County. I love being right at the foot of the mountains and close enough to attend the Denver Broncos, Colorado Mammoth, and Colorado Rockies games here in Denver. After the move back to the Denver-Metro area, I received a job at a virtual public school that provided public school needs for a diverse population of students. During this time I applied to Western Governors University to receive my Master of Arts in Secondary Education in under a year so I could prepare myself for the classroom. This is one of my most memorable moments! Not only did I earn my Masters degree, but the graduation ceremony was at Disney World, a place I love to visit often with my family!

When I am not at work or enrolled in school, I enjoy reading a good book, preferably something cheesy and romantic, watching sports, traveling with my fiancé and family, watching crime shows, mostly Major Crimes, and hanging out with my cat.
