Meet Your Teacher
Welcome to KB. My name is Susan Howse and I am excited to be a part of the Dual Kinder this year with Mrs. Rodriguez. I graduated in 1985 from Minot State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education K-8. I moved to El Paso the summer of 1985 with a group of eight teachers who were also from Minot, North Dakota. I started my teaching career as a Pre-K teacher just when the program was getting its start in EPISD. I have taught kindergarten, first, second and third grades throughout my 32 years, all of which have been in EPISD.
I believe children should be given many hands-on activities so they are actively involved in learning. Kindergarten children are action-oriented learners who need plenty of opportunities to play, reflect on their work and interact with other children in an educational environment. Your child will have many opportunities to learn concepts through whole group, small group, work stations, independent work, music, art and play in my classroom.
When I am not teaching, I can be found at the golf course with my husband and occasionally one or two of the boys, reading or walking my dogs.
Conference Schedule: Monday, Wednesday - Friday 1:00-1:45
