My name is Amy Howard and I have a Master’s Degree and Certification in Early Childhood Education. I am also endorsed by the state of Massachusetts for Sheltered English Immersion (S.EI.). Before coming to Saint Joseph School, I taught first grade at Saint Francis of Assisi school in Medford. My interests include reading and spending time with family and friends. My goals for the year are for my first graders to feel confident in their abilities and for our classroom to be filled with acts of kindness. I enjoy watching my first graders grow throughout the year and I am looking forward to another great year with my first grade friends.
