Amy Downs

Instructional Lab Supervisor

I have been fortunate to teach and work at Valencia College since 2011 as an associate professor and lab supervisor. Valencia students are the best, and I relish in their success!

The development of critical thinking and life-long learning skills are important to me. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and a Master of Arts degree in Education. I believe learning is a partnership between instructor and student.

Student success is my priority, and I look forward each semester to working with our students in the West Campus Communications Center. It was a pleasure to receive a 2018 John & Suanne Rouche Excellence Award. My staff and I strive each day to provide a supportive environment where learning happens, regardless of academic level or individual challenges.
