My name is Christy Howerton and I have been teaching for 22 years. I began my teaching career in northwest Arkansas, where I taught for 13 years before moving to Russellville. I currently teach reading recovery and love every minute of it! I enjoy reading and spending time with my husband and two children, Gunnar and Maddy.

My name is Amber Underwood. I have been teaching for 14 years. Eleven of those have been in Russellville. I am currently a reading recovery teacher and hold my National Board Certification for reading-language arts for ages 3-12. I enjoy being outdoors, running, kayaking, and spending time with my son, Colton.
