Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Malea Howell and I began my journey as a reading specialist in 2022. My previous experience includes teaching kindergarten for over a decade at Longfellow Elementary. Throughout my time in kindergarten, my passion for teaching foundational reading skills grew exponentially. There is something so special about watching a student begin to gain the individual skills needed to become a lifelong reader. I plan to communicate closely with classroom teachers, establish relationships with my students, and use the latest reading research to excel our intervention groups here at Lincoln Elementary. My own love for learning has never gone away; and I hope to instill that passion for growth in all my students.
Outside of school, I do have a family of my own. My husband and I welcomed our daughter in December of 2015 and our son in October of 2020. We are active members within our church, love rooting on the Cubs, spending time with our families, and traveling to the beach.
