Michael Howard

Michael Howard Jr.
Social Studies Teacher, Oswego Middle School

Michael Howard Jr. is a social studies teacher at Oswego Middle School.
Howard, 25, earned a Bachelor of Science degree in adolescent education with a minor in athletic coaching and economics at SUNY Oswego.

He is presently in a master’s program in literacy education at SUNY Oswego.

Howard is an OMS football and wrestling coach; organized a youth wrestling program in Oswego in 2011; is a Cornell camp counselor; and is also a volunteer wrestling coach at SUNY Oswego.

Howard is a member of the Buccaneer Boosters.

He was a magna cum laude graduate of SUNY Oswego, an NCAA Division III Academic All-American, and captured the Academic Award for Excellence at SUNY Oswego.
“My goal as an educator is to make the social studies curriculum relevant to our Oswego City School District students,” he said. “I must strive as an instructor to reach my self-actualization of establishing a connection with each student and finding tools to motivate them to reach their full potential.”

While in college, Howard became involved in coaching and promoting the sport of wrestling in the community. Throughout his college career, he was given the chance to coach a summer wrestling camp in Hannibal.

He would later go on to reinstate the Oswego Pee-Wee Wrestling Program.

“One of the most significant accomplishments in my life has been the transition from an undergraduate student to a professional in the community,” Howard said. “During my collegiate years as a student and athlete, I discovered the importance of setting goals and establishing time management. As a student, it just seemed like the sensible skills to utilize. However, as a professional, I grow to understand their importance.”
