    Hello!  My name is Mary Howell, and I would like to welcome you to sixth grade social studies, as well as the Gifted and Talented Program, here at Powdersville Middle School.  Come travel with me as we journey from the time period of Ancient Civilizations to AD 1600.  I have taught sixth grade for 27 years, and throughout the years, I have taught all academic subjects at the sixth grade level; however, world history is my favorite subject.   Also, I thoroughly enjoy teaching the Sixth Grade Gifted and Talented classes.  


    I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Clemson University in 1990, and in 2004, I received my Master of Education from Southern Wesleyan University.   In 2002, I received Middle Childhood Generalist National Board Certification and my National Board Renewal in 2011.  



    I believe that all students can learn; they just learn in different ways.  It is my goal as a teacher to identify those ways and to help every student be successful!  I welcome and encourage parent involvement because involved parents really do make a difference in the education of their children.


    I am married and have three daughters.  Two of them are married, and I have been blessed with a precious grandson and three beautiful granddaughters.  My hobbies include dancing, going to the beach, playing with Charlie, my dog, scrapbooking, shopping, and most of all spending time with my family.
