Subjects Taught
4th Grade


I have been an educator for five years now. I have taught first grade for 4 years and fourth grade for 1 year. I am excited to be working with such a diverse group of students and parents. My educational goal is to reach every child that is given to me and to give them a lasting life-changing experience that will be included in a book of memories for each them.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Sociology and a Master's degree in Elementary Education. I am currently seeking a doctorate level (Ph.D.) degree from the University of Phoenix in Higher Education Administration. I received my first two degrees from the University of Mobile. I am enjoying this educational journey and excited to be gaining more knowledge along the way.



I am a mother and wife. I am very hard working, independent, and believe that within myself "failure is not an option." I love people and love to lend a helping hand to those who are in need and who can appreciate help. I was born and raised in Mobile, Alabama. Attended W.D. Robbins (elementary), K.J. Clark (junior high), and Mattie T. Blount (high school). I am a proud Leopard and glad to be a part of the alumni experience.

I am very motivated to learn and to teach others. My husband is Jeffery Howze who I have been married to for nearly 10 years. Together we have a beautiful daughter who is 3 years old (Chaselyn a.k.a Chase). My family and I reside in Semmes, Alabama where we enjoy the quiet of the country atmosphere. I am very family oriented;love vacationing; shopping is my addiction, and eating out is a personal enjoyment! To really know me is to love me!
