The Table Rock Lake Chamber of Commerce honored Reeds Spring Middle School teacher Kim Howard as February's Teacher of the Month.
Howard teaches 7th and 8th-grade science. Principal Travis Kite called Mrs. Howard one of the best teachers he's ever met.
"It is Kim’s consistent and dedicated approach to doing what is best for her students that sets her apart from others," Kite said. "According to her peers, Kim is an amazing teacher who goes above and beyond what is expected, while continually challenging her students and providing them with a variety of learning experiences."
Howard is in her fifth year at the Reeds Spring School District and has been teaching for 28 years total. She has served as an instructional coach, sharing knowledge and expertise on educational topics with her peers.
Kite pointed out that Mrs. Howard has embraced the challenge of integrating technology into her classroom while focusing her efforts on personalizing the learning for each of her students. She also works to provide leadership opportunities for students by sponsoring the National Junior Honor Society.
