    My name is Lee Ann Howell and this will be my 16th year at Col Smith Middle School. I have an amazing son who is a 22-year-old and a fabulous daughter who is an 19 year-old sophmore at the University of Arizona. My husband and I have been married for an adventurous 26 years. I have two silly dogs that I adore named Buddy (Boston Terrier) and Parker (Black Lab). I am a lifelong learner and I look forward to learning from everyone of my students. Working with seventh graders is a joy because they contribute so much to classroom discussions and lead the way in exploring new ideas.  

    In my spare time, I enjoy reading, laughing, traveling, camping, hunting, fishing, cooking, and most of all spending time with my family. My family is also very into sports and we love football season. 

    I encourage students to bring in anything science related to share during class. I always recommend that they check with their parents and me first.  I enjoy when students share their reading choices and recipes they are trying so I can try them too. 

    The best way to reach me is through email but you can also leave a message at the front office. (520-459-8892) When you leave a message at the front office, I will try to get back to you at the end of the day or the following morning. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
