I currently have seven grandchildren and love spending time with them. I also like spending time on my boat fishing and swimming. My goal is to still be able to waterski at age 60.

Howe graduated from North Idaho College with an AA and AS degree. He then transferred to the University of Idaho and received a BS degree in Business Education. In 2008 he received his Masters in Education, Educational Leadership from the University of Idaho.

In 2005, I became the AD at Council and the assistant principal in 2008. I have also coached football (JH and HS), baseball, and basketball at different times throughout my teaching career. There are a lot of different theories out there about how to coach, run a business or how to be an administrator. I have found that there is only one thing that holds true in trying to do any of those things and that is it is all about relationships. Players won’t play, employees won’t work, and teachers won’t excel unless they know they can trust you and know that you care about them. Building relationships is the key in being successful in any endeavor in which you pursue.
