Welcome to Ms. Howgate's Homepage! 


This is my ninth year teaching at Ridgway Middle School.  I have been in Edgewater Park School District since September 2001.  Each year at Ridgway is a new adventure!  This coming year is no exception!  I am co-teaching ALL 8th grade!  I am excited to be working with Ms. Reilly in 8th grade Social Studies and Mrs. Tecce in 8th grade Language Arts!   


A Little About me ...

I  am a certified Special Education and Elementary teacher with an MA in technology. I graduated with my BA from HFU and received my Masters from Walden University.  I am a mother of two grown sons and a pack of rescue pups.  I love music, sports, travel, coffee, and dogs!  



CONTACT INFORMATION:  Because I am moving from room to room the best way to contact me is through email. I check my email every day.

I also use a program called REMIND. Remind allows me to push out reminders regarding homework and projects through text messages.  Once you sign up, you and or your child can receive reminders to help keep on track. It also allows you to message me back and receive individual responses.
