Mrs. Teresa Howard

Hello Longhorns! 

I love being on the Neill Second Grade Math Science Team.  I grew up and completed my degree in Elementary Education in  West Texas at Odessa College and The University of Texas Permian Basin. The Houston area has been my home for over 20 years now, since my husband, Garren, who is an awesome chef, was transferred here in 1999.  

When I’m not teaching, you can find me on the golf course.  We are members of Pecan Grove Plantation Golf Course and love to travel to beautiful golf destinations for vacations and weekend get-aways. We also love sports and watching our Houston Astros and Houston Texans.

I’m blessed with two amazing sons, two fabulous daughters-in-law, and two wonderful grandsons.  We also have two senior dogs that are so sweet and spoiled!  Bear is a Border Collie and Gracie is a Cocker Spaniel.  My Father-in-Law and his cat Rowdy live with us too.

I enjoy reading, photography, and spending as much time as possible with family, friends, & neighbors.

I'm so excited to be a Longhorn because teaching  has always been my passion.  I love Math and the world of numbers, patterns, relationships, geometry and real world applications of  schedules, time, money, and data that Math provides..  I also absolutely love Science.  Exploring through hands-on experiments and discovery science is so fun and exciting! 

I can’t wait to meet everyone.   I’m looking forward to an amazing year.  Go Longhorns!
