Northeast teacher wins award

CLINTON — A Northeast elementary teacher recently earned Ashford University’s Teacher of the Year award.

Teri Howe received the award from Ashford University Vice President and Campus Director John Ballheim. The award that provided Howe with $500 in classroom supplies, is for the entire area, not just the Northeast School District.

Howe has taught at Northeast for 33 years. She currently is a co-athletic director and teaches elementary physical education. She has also coached several sports, including a 33-year stint with the middle school girls’ basketball team.

Previously, she taught middle school and high school P.E. and drivers’ education.

“When thinking about the qualities that a highly effective physical education teacher should possess, Teri immediately comes to mind,” Erik Johnson, a faculty member in Ashford’s College of Education, said. “She exhibits an enthusiastic and positive attitude at all times. Teri serves as a positive role model to her students by exemplifying personal health and fitness and the overall enjoyment of having an active lifestyle.”

Howe, who received her bachelor of science degree from Wartburg College, is active at the Elvira Zion Lutheran Church and serves on the leadership, character and wellness committees at Northeast. She and her husband Jeff have been married for 30 years and have three children and one granddaughter.

“In addition to her excellent qualities as a physical education teacher, Teri has provided service to the teaching profession by working with teacher candidates in the physical education licensure track at Ashford University,” Mindy Dunlap, Ashford faculty member, said. “Within the past three school years, Teri has worked with nine teacher candidates in experiences ranging from field experience, practicum, and student teaching. Throughout those experiences, she actively involves the teacher candidates in her classroom and she shares her wealth of knowledge with them as well. She has been a wonderful mentor to Ashford students and is truly deserving of this prestigious award.”
