Mrs. Mary Howell (Hooper) BSN, RN

Hello Explorers!

My name is Mary Howell (Hooper) and I love being the school nurse at Settlers Way Elementary. This school year is my third year at SWE and fourth year as a school nurse. I grew up in California, but have lived in Texas since 2012. I graduated with my Associate Degree in Nursing from Victoria College in 2015. In 2017, I have completed my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Texas in Arlington. My nursing interests include pediatrics, women's health, and endocrinology. I love volunteering as a medical staff for Type 1 diabetic children at the Texas Lion's Camp in Kerrville. I also enjoy working in the nursery at my church. During my free time, I enjoy cooking, traveling, and spending time with my family.
