Mrs. Joanne Howard

Welcome to our class website! I hope you and your child will find the website to be a useful tool in staying connected to curriculum, important dates, and educational resources.   
I have been teaching in the Panama-Buena Vista Union School District for 31 years.  I spent my first four years at Bakersfield Christian Life Elementary.  Although I have taught many grades, most of my experience has been in grades 1-3.  Third grade is my favorite so I am thrilled to have my Laurelglen Howard's Heroes for the 2015-2016 school year!
I feel that an open line of communication between parents and the teacher is key to a student's success in school.  If I do not respond to your email within 24 hours, please send a note with your child or call me.  Sometimes emails automatically go to the spam folder.
