Welcome to HOWYWOOD... (my last name is Howard and I have a Hollywood theme going on- ha)! :) I have 16 years of experience teaching 1st grade and Kindergarten in Texas & Minnesota. I've always been passionate about sharing awesome ideas... and TPT is the perfect place for me to get to do that! Come on in and look around! Thanks for stopping by my store!
I love making learning FUN and I believe relationships are KEY! Children don't care how much you know until they know how much you care, right? They may forget things we teach them, forget what we said, but kids will always remember how their teacher made them feel. :)
District Teacher of the Month/ Teacher of the Year from my school! Radio Station Teacher of the Week!
Master's and Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota
A little more about me... I grew up as the oldest of 4 sisters who all look so much alike that we're hard to tell apart (and 3 of us create products on TPT!). I've been married to my high school sweetheart for 14 crazy, awesome years and we've been blessed with 3 beautiful babies I love being momma to. Life is good!
