is simply thrilled about her fourth year as a high school reading specialist at Potomac Falls High School! Her eighth year in Loudoun County has proven to be an exciting run thus far! She is not new to education, however, having taught for nineteen years in total...wow, that's a lot! She has taught elementary, middle, and college level courses and loves this profession. Mrs. Howe-Freeman has an Associate of Arts in General Studies with a concentration in Education from Prince George's Community College. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary/Middle School Education with a concentration in Language Arts from Frostburg State University. She also has a Master's degree in Reading Education from Bowie State University. She has completed her
certification in Supervision and Administration from George Mason University. Boy, does she like to go to school!
This year, the new adventure that she is embarking upon is being one half of the Activities Coordinator position for our beloved PFHS! Who is the other half, you ask? Why Mr. Jonathon Kite, our very own Technology Guru. She is also going to be one half of the Junior Class Sponsor dynamic duo with Ms. Julie Carter, Mathematics Genius. Ms. Howe-Freeman also sponsors Battle of the Books competitive team who will be rocking the competition again this year. First place, here we come! But wait, the fun doesn't stop there at all since she is also partnering up with Ms. Michelle Veney, Mama Bear DECA co-sponsor and Mr. Richard Bader, guidance counselor extraordinaire to do CAMPUS. Ms. Howe-Freeman loves her job, loves her colleagues, but more than that she loves PFHS! This year is going to be a busy one for her but she is so looking forward to it all!
On a more personal note, she lives in Potomac Falls with her hubby, Sam, their 13 year old son, Tristan and 4 year old son, Phillip. In their free time, they all love to play board games of all varieties especially Scrabble and Magic. Ms. Howe-Freeman LOVES Scrabble, play a game with her sometime! They are all active participants in Boy Scout Troop 966 out of the Sterling Ruritan. A leopard gecko named Harlequin is her super cool pet! You can usually find her walking on the paths in and around Potomac Falls or shopping at the mall for her new house, so don't be shy, say "Hello". Mrs. Howe-Freeman absolutely loves Garfield as evidenced by her classroom! She has a real passion for reading and is enthusiastic about the opportunity to spread that same appreciation of the written word to ALL of her students and the PFHS community. Email Mrs. Howe-Freeman anytime to talk....books that is!
