Golden Apple Award: Ms. Morgan Howie

NORTHWOOD - She's a local art teacher who is able to inspire even the least artistic of students. Ms. Morgan Howie is this week's Golden Apple Award winner.
Ms. Howie is in her first year of teaching and is already a Golden Apple Award winner thanks to Mallory Rheingans.
“I nominated her because she makes art really fun to do,” says Rheingans. “She makes it so there's many options.”
“I knew I wanted to give students a lot of choice because I know a lot of times that makes art more enjoyable for them, so I like to give them some direction in a medium and then let them take it their own way,” says Morgan Howie.
So whether it's grabbing a pencil or paint, for Ms. Howie it's all about bringing out the best in each student.
“A lot of times when kids come in to art especially for 7th graders where it's a required class, I think a lot of times it just takes sitting down and working with them one on one. Telling them well this might look cool or what if you did this instead or just encouraging them,” she says.
As for how she feels about being a Golden Apple Award winner?
“Amazing. I love it, it's really neat.”
Congratulations, Ms. Howie.
