Mr. Reed Downing- Computer Science/Programming
Hello! This is my second year at Little Elm High School and 6th year teaching overall. I am a third generation teacher and originally from Oklahoma. I played baseball for two years at a junior college in Kansas before injuries forced me to no longer be able to play. I moved closer to home and became a full time employee in a trust department at a local bank, while also being a full time student at Southeastern Oklahoma State University. I graduated in 2014 with a degree in Business Management.
The next summer I decided to follow my passion and start teaching and coaching. I have previously taught Computer Science and Computer Applications. During my time coaching football, I coached in a state championship game and made two quarterfinal appearances in consecutive years. I've coached in a regional championship in baseball and multiple college athletes in both sports.
I am excited for the opportunity to introduce Little Elm students to the world of Computer Science and Programming! It started out as a hobby for me before I started teaching. I enjoy helping students understand this field and the possible career opportunities it presents. Feel free to contact me anytime with questions you might have. Thanks!
Hello Lobos and Lobo parents and guardians!!
Tomorrow is our first day and I know it has been hectic for most. For my online users, you will need to check your school emails and Canvas for instruction. I have sent an invite to the Canvas course through your school email. I will have instructions for the at-school learners in class. Please bare with us as we get through these tough times! Thanks!
Below is a screenshot of how to log on to Canvas from your school email. Click on the 3x3 dots(the one highlighted in grey on my screen screenshot), then scroll down until you find the Canvas app. Once you open the app there should be an invitation at the top of the screen.
