Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Howard has taught for 15 years, with experience in 1st grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade, and 5th grade. She joined the Banks staff in 2013 after teaching in Wilson, Charlotte, and Garner. Ms. Howard loves everything about teaching and believes teaching is what she was meant to do. According to her, "I love watching the children take on a task that is difficult and then solve it. I love the way we become a family and learn to make mistakes, together. That is, after all, how we learn....by trial and error. Together we can tackle everyting and anything that comes our way. Goal setting in our room is huge, and we hold one another accountable to strive to reach those goals. I love watching the light bulbs come on and, even more, I love to watch the children light one another's fire -- encouraging nurturing, and caring for one another."
When she is not at school, she enjoys relaxing by the ocean and reading a good book. Ms. Howard lives in Clayton with her husband, Brad, their daughter, Madison, and their crazy dog, Tyson. They love traveling and spending time together.
