April is School Library Month

It’s a great time to take a moment to recognize our teacher librarian Denise Shekleton and our library assistant Edna Vandervort and the role they play in supporting learning and teaching in our school. They assist in teaching literacy skills because they understand the reading process and how to reinforce reading skill development at all ages, and more importantly, they open up the world of quality literature to all students. They also teach digital literacy lessons so not only can students use current technology, but also understand what digital citizenship means. They help students become competent information users who know how to find, evaluate and use information effectively. They collaborate with teachers to create lessons and projects that develop skills students need for the future. Lastly, they are behind-the-scene instructional coaches, curriculum developers and “school-wide cheerleaders.” Thank you Denise and Edna for all that you do for the students at Howard-Winn. 

Happy School Library Month!

Substitute Teachers and Associates Needed
Do you like working with children and helping them learn? Do you enjoy working in a high-energy, creative learning/working environment? If your answer is "YES" we need you! Howard-Winn is looking for substitute teachers and associates to work in our classrooms. In the absence of the regular classroom teacher or associate you would be helping students to learn subject matter and/or skills that are required for curriculum lessons and providing meaningful instruction for our students in their classrooms. If interested please submit a letter of application and a resume to: Superintendent, 1000 Schroder Drive, Cresco, IA 52136
