"They say it takes a village to raise a child. At Howell Valley we’re more than a village, we’re a family. Each of us has an important role in our students’ lives. The board and admin recognizes that, and does their best to support us in our roles. I’m blessed as I’m an employee, parent and patron of the Howell Valley district. I wouldn’t want my kids to go to school anywhere else, and I wouldn’t want to work anywhere else”

Ms. Karyn Vaughan
5th & 6th Grade ELA
“As an alum of this highly regarded small institution, I was known to have said, after retiring from a career in another state, that my dream job was to be a part of the Howell Valley staff. I didn't hesitate one minute when I got the call. This place has influenced hundreds of citizens of this area and the world, literally. Statesmen, doctors, teachers, and a myriad of other professionals that have been movers and shakers in many positions. I am honored and proud to say, "I teach at Howell Valley" whenever anyone asks about my current position. Fifth and Sixth Reading/Communication Arts is my passion and I learn every day that my students can do anything they have ambition to do, and so, there is my mission. Thank you to Howell Valley for giving me this opportunity”.
