Mrs. Howard History

6/7 History

Hello! My name is Faith Howard and this is my fourteenth year at Monte Vista... it hardly seems possible! Clearly, I love it here, so I am never leaving. :) When I am not at school teaching or battling the students in our annual Lip Sync Battles, I am busy with my little ones. My son is seven years old. He loves math and keeps me busy with all things sports related- baseball, soccer and jujitsu. My daughter is three years old. She keeps me on my toes by questioning me constantly and she loves break dancing in her pink tutu.

I am looking forward to getting to know my students and we will have a fantastic year!

2019/2020 School Year

Dear Students and Parents,

I look forward to getting to know you and I know this will be an amazing year!


I welcome the opportunity to communicate with both students and parents regarding academic progress. To preserve confidentiality, I will not discuss student progress during class time. Students may arrange to meet with me privately during breaks or after school when necessary. Parents and/or guardians may contact me regarding their student in several ways:

E-Mail: This is the most efficient method of contacting me. My e-mail address is

Phone: Call the school and leave a message during school hours. I will return your call within 48 hours. The school phone number is (805) 482-8891.

Note or Letter: Please jot down your questions or concerns in your student's agenda and as long as they remember to show it to me, I will respond promptly.

Please also come to MV and sign up for ParentConnect. This will give you 24/7 access to my grade book and will allow you to see your child's current grade as well as any missing assignments.

Again, a copy of what to expect this year is located in Google Classroom. This is where printable assignments will be uploaded for your printing pleasure. During Back to School night I will be able to get you signed up for Google Guardian... we'll talk about this soon!

I know we are all looking forward to a great year!!!
