Ms. Howes

Hello, Forest Grove Families.  My name is Patricia Howes.  I am the 5th-grade resource teacher.  I am semi-new to Northern Virginia.  I am a transplant from Ohio.  I received my Bachelors of Science degree from the College of Mount Saint Joseph and a Masters Degree in Education with a focus in Special Education from Northern Kentucky University.  I have over 30 years of experience and have taught every grade level except for kindergarten and fourth grade. I believe learning should be a fun and positive experience. I am excited to be a Falcon.  Go fifth grade!
