Mr. Richard Howell

Thank you for visiting my page,  I am excited about another year here at Childers Elementary school, the best elementary school in Lincoln County!!  I have been fortunate to be a teacher and administrator at the Elementary, Middle and High School level throughout my 29 year career. Here at Childers, in our Physical Education class we focus on the Physical, Mental, Social and Emotional well being of our students.  The goal is for students to have fun participating and learning how to make healthy/safe choices throughout their lives. We stress sportsmanship and great attitudes.  Students will participate in a wide variety of activities that will help improve their locomotor and manipulative skills.   Parents, please make sure your student wears the appropriate clothing and tennis shoes on their PE day.  I hope all of our students have a great year!!!
