Welcome to the wonderful world of 6 th graders! My name is Connie Howar and this is my 26th year of teaching at Iowa Valley. After raising our three children in the Marengo community, my husband and I moved near Sigourney to help our aging parents. I believe that sixth grade should be challenging and rewarding as students end their elementary years. We strive to keep our students motivated and engaged. Please contact me at my school email ( or phone if you have any questions or concerns.
