Mrs. Jennifer Howells
Welcome to Lightridge!
I am Jennifer Howells! This is my eighth year of teaching and my third year in Loudoun County. 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. I am coming to Lightridge all the way from Willard Intermediate School and prior to that, I spent 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 works at Willard Middle School as the Reading Specialist. We have two small 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!
