I am Ms. Loren Howard and this is my second year as a learning specialist in the districtwide autism classroom here at West.  I grew up in St. Louis, MO and earned a B.S. in Special Education and B.A. in Theatre Performance at Mizzou.  I am currently working on a master's degree in differentiated instruction through Missouri Western University.
