Nearly 30 years ago, Ginny Howard began her work in Early Childhood Education as a paraprofessional for an Early Childhood Family Education program in Minnesota. After completing her Bachelor’s Degree in Davenport, Iowa, she found her way to Nebraska, where she was a Pre-Kindergarten teacher at Belvedere Elementary, in Omaha Public Schools. She spent the next 12 years in North Omaha, during which she completed her Masters’ Degree. Ginny’s next endeavour would lead her to DC West Community Schools as an Early Childhood Special Education teacher and coordinator in Waterloo, Nebraska. In 2016, she moved out of the classroom, becoming an Early Childhood Specialist, providing training and coaching around social emotional and behavioral learning throughout Eastern Nebraska (training on the Teaching Pyramid and Nebraska ELGs), as well as working with the ASD Network of Nebraska as a consultant. Since June, she has worked at the Nebraska Department of Education as an Early Childhood Special Education Specialist, with the majority of her role focused on NeMTSS for Early Childhood and Teaching Strategies Gold.
