Mr. Howard attended Asbury College in Wilmore, Kentucky in 1980 and earned a degree in 1984 in secondary education. His undergraduate major was History with special emphasis in American History.

Upon graduation from Asbury, Mr. Howard began his teaching career at Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School in Indianapolis. While at Brebeuf, Mr. Howard taught AP European History, AP U.S. History, and several social studies electives. Mr. Howard also began his coaching career at Brebeuf, coaching the Freshman Boys team and serving as an assistant coach to the Varsity Boys team.

After 4 years at Brebeuf Prep, Mr. Howard returned to his native Michigan and began teaching at Southfield Christian School where he remained for 16 years.  Teaching numerous AP classes, developing a curriculum for a Humanities course, and serving as the department chair were the professional highlights of his years at Southfield Christian. Coaching basketball, serving as a class sponsor, and getting involved in extra-curricular activities and ministries allowed Mr. Howard to enjoy working with students outside the classroom as well as inside the classroom.

While teaching at Southfield Christian Mr. Howard completed his Masters degree at the University of Detroit Mercy in Liberal Studies (Humanities). This degree allowed him to begin teaching college courses in American Studies and Humanities at Cornerstone University.

A move to central Ohio brought Mr. Howard to Millersport in 2006. Having taught only high school and college students in his career, Mr. Howard enjoys the unique challenges of working with younger learners, and loves the energy and enthusiasm his students bring to class everyday.

In his time away from school, Mr. Howard enjoys woodworking and home renovation. He enjoys getting away to Colorado to backpack in the summer, playing in a brass band in Worthington, and following the Michigan Wolverines in any sport they play!
