Welcome! My name is Ms. Howell, and I am excited to be your language arts teacher this year!
Before teaching, I attended Butler University and earned my degree in Secondary Education, English, and German. I also recently earned my Gifted and Talented Licensure through Purdue University. When I'm not in the classroom, I love to travel (I visited four states this summer while visiting multiple friends), read intriguing books (most of which are Young Adult, so I can recommend them to YOU), hang out with my family, and run/do cardio/be healthy so I can keep up with 12 and 13 year olds! :)
Five Fun Facts About Me:
- I lived in Germany for five months during college (Sprechen sie Deutsch?).
- I have seven (yes, seven) brothers. Do I have any sisters? Nope!
- I helped co-author a book titled Overcoming Student Apathy: Motivating Students for Academic Success.
- Useless skill: I can touch my nose with my tongue.
- I was born and raised in Noblesville, Indiana. Guess who was our biggest rival? Carmel!
