Welcome to Fairview Elementary School! It is indeed a pleasure to be a part of an outstanding group of professionals with immeasurable expertise. I'm Ms. Howard. This will be my fifth year at Fairview and twenty-second year in public education. Most of my teaching experience has been with fifth-grade students with the exception of teaching fourth grade for approximately seven years. When I'm not in the classroom, I enjoy spending time with family, reading, shopping, and soothing my wanderlust appetite through travel. I am a life long learner; therefore, it is my hope to instill a love of learning in my students as well. Although unprecedented, this year will be a great one! I look forward to facilitating learning and helping my students mature into savvy independent critical thinkers!
