Mr. Jamie Howell

I have 5 years of teaching experience. My first two years as a teacher were in a rural small town in Southwestern Kansas, where I also coached football and baseball.  Another year I spent in a medium sized middle school in Western Kentucky, where I was the head softball coach for the high school.  Ruskin has been a step out of my box and a great learning and growing experience.
