Mrs. Tacy Howe

Third Grade Teacher

 

Welcome  to 3rd grade! My name is Mrs. Howe. I’m so happy to be your 3rd grade teacher for the 2022-2023 school year. This will be my 8th year of teaching. I taught in Richardson ISD, Plano ISD and worked as a Curriculum Director and Executive Director for the Primrose Schools. This is my 2nd year teaching at Shepard and I am excited to be back!

I live here in Plano, Texas with my husband, son and daughter and one black Labrador. I enjoy going out to eat and trying out new locations around the Dallas area. I love to travel and visit places I’ve never been. When it’s time to relax I love to cozy up to a good movie and popcorn.
