My full name is Mrs. Melody Spires-Howe but you can call me Mrs.Howe. I was born and raised in Augusta and graduated from the Richmond County School System. I continued my education at Augusta State University where I obtained a Bachelor's Degree in History with a Minor in Anthropology and a Master's Degree in the Art of Teaching with a Concentration in Secondary Education. For the last five years, I have been teaching in the AP & IB Programs at the Academy of Richmond County. Some of the classes I have had the pleasure of teaching were AP Psychology, AP United States History, IB Psychology Year 1 and 2, IB History Year 1 and 2, and Personal & Professional Skills Year 1 and 2.
I am happily married to my husband, Jason, and together we have three children. Some of my hobbies included reading, sewing, crocheting, painting, and listening to music. Oh .... and drinking coffee. Some of my interests and fandoms include Harry Potter, The Legend of Zelda, Marvel, Star Wars, and Bollywood films.
I am extremely excited about starting my second year at Davidson Fine Arts. This year I look forward to teaching AP World History, Honors World History, & AP Psychology. But more importantly, I am excited about getting to know my students and sharing in all of their wonderful talents.
