Mrs. Amy Howard
Welcome, BEARCATS, and welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Amy Howard, and this will be my first year at McCall! This will be my 21st year in education, however, and I cannot wait to get started! My children attend Aledo. My son, Eddie, is in 9th grade and plays the cello in the Fort Worth Youth Orchestra. He also keeps busy playing select baseball. My daughter, Caroline, is in 7th grade at Aledo Middle School. She plays the viola in the Fort Worth Youth Orchestra and dances competitively! My other daughter is Brooke. She is a 2nd grade student at McCall! She is a Bearcat cheerleader and enjoys gymnastics and spending time with family!
I believe each child has a unique strength with varied experiences and learning styles. My instruction is differentiated to provide all students the support they need to be successful no matter what their prior learning and exposures have been. Each day, I look for a way to bring powerful learning with love, laughter, & passion as a way to engage with children.
I look forward to a fantastic year of learning!
