is simply thrilled about her seventh year as a high school reading specialist at Potomac Falls High School! Her tenth year in Loudoun County has proven to be an exciting run thus far! She is not new to education, however, having taught for twenty-three 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. Currently, she is attending Longwood University to get a certificate in Library Sciences. Boy, does she like to go to school!
This year, she will continue to sponsor the 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 Mr. Richard Bader, guidance counselor 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 Sugarland Run with her hubby, Sam, their 16 year old son, Tristan and 7 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 and Venture Crew 966 out of Sterling Ruritan. They are also active with Cub Scout Troop 572. They are the epitome of a scouting family! Their geckos are named Thunder and Lightening, a snail named Turbo, and a fish named Ben are their super cool pets! You can usually find her walking on the paths in and around Potomac Falls or shopping at the mall for her house, so don't be shy, say "Hello". Mrs. Howe-Freeman absolutely loves Garfield as evidenced by her classroom! She loves Doctor Who and Harry Potter everything as well! 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!
