I hope you are all adjusting to our 'new normal' and I hope to see more of you back at school soon. April 12th ends our third marking period.   Ler's get caught up!  Meanwhile, let's make the most of our remote/hybrid learning.  There are some advantages, but as always, you've got to show up and do the work!


     GO BIRDS!!!










Welcome to Ms. Howgate's Homepage! 


This is my tenth year teaching at Ridgway Middle School.  I have been in Edgewater Park School District since September 2001.  Each year has been a new adventure but this year, nationwide, is a new experience for all of us.  We are meeting and discussing the best options to educate our children.   


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.
