Mrs. Candice Howell

Hello, and welcome to a new school year! I am so excited to have your child in my class this year. It is hard to transition in the middle of the year but it has been a wonderful experienceand I can't thank my Creekside team and parents enough. I am so thankful that I moved to Creekside Elementary and know we will have great years to come. 

My name is Candice Howell. This is my seventh year teaching. I taught two years in 2nd grade and four years in 3rd grade. I am excited to teach 3rd because I know what students are capable of and know how successful they can be. There is nothing more exciting to me than seeing a child achieve success with personal goals. I attended East Carolina University for my Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Greenville, NC. I immediately started teaching in Pitt County in a small town called Farmville. I have had wonderful experiences teaching there however, my husband took a job in Jones County and required us to move to New Bern. I am so happy he did because it brought me here to be with y'all.  

Third grade is a very busy year filled with lots of fun and exciting learning opportunities. I am very excited about what is in store for your child this year, and I look forward to working with you as well. With the pandemic, some kids are academically behind. This will require hard work from both the student, myself, and the parents. Encouraging your child to come to school EVERY DAY, word hard, and read at home is extremely detrimental to your child's academic success. Together, we can help close the achievement gap. I look forward to a fun- filled year with your child. I have many exciting things planned and can't wait to get started!
