Mrs. Jennifer Howells
Welcome to Lightridge!
I am Jennifer Howells! This is my ninth year of teaching and my fourth year in Loudoun County Public Schools. I am originally from the Finger Lakes in New York and I graduated from Penn State University (We are...Penn State!) with a Bachelor's Degree in Social Studies Education. Prior to Lightridge, I spent two years at Willard Intermediate School and five years as an English teacher in Warren County, VA. This year I will be teaching World History and Geography I, both academic and Intro to AP. All classes will utilize Schoology for updates, materials, and assignments.
In addition to teaching, I am the sponsor of the Environmental Club. In this club, participants will work to bring awareness to environmental issues, such as protection, conservation, preservation, and restoration. We will also educate and empower students and other members of the Lightridge community to make positive impacts on our natural environment.
I live in Winchester with my husband, Adam, who teaches 7th grade English at Willard Middle School. We have two children, Silas and Sophie. In my spare time, I love reading, baking, and researching my family history. I am thrilled to join you at Lightridge; I am looking forward to seeing many familiar faces and meeting new ones!
