Meet Mrs. Howe
Welcome to AVID 8 and Social Science 8 Honors ! I am excited for this school year, and look forward to working with you as partners in the education of your child.
This is my 16th year teaching in the Elk Grove Unified School District, and I have spent all of it teaching middle school! I began my career at T.R. Smedberg Middle School teaching 7th and 8th grade history. I also served as the AVID Coordinator there. I have been teaching at Katherine Albiani since the school opened in 2005. I have taught all levels of 7th and 8th grade Social Science during my career. I am excited to continue to teach Social Science 8 Honors this year, as well as serving as the AVID Coordinator and teaching all AVID 8 students.
I grew up in Grass Valley, CA, and earned my BA in Social Science from Sacramento State, as well as my Single Subject Teaching Credential in Social Science. As a first generation college graduate, I am passionate about working with our AVID students to give them the academic and social skills in order to help them achieve their college and career goals.
My husband and I are avid sports fans of the Sacramento Kings, the Oakland Raiders, and the San Francisco Giants. We also love to travel and spend time with our family and our four cats.
I look forward to being your child’s AVID or Social Science Honors teacher this year. If you ever have any questions, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
