We had the good fortune of connecting with Shevonica M Howell and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Shevonica M, what’s your definition for success?
My definition of success is easy! Success is being happy and comfortable within your own skin. It’s having family and friends that are there to support and push you when giving up seem like an option. Success is doable and with God all things are possible.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Honestly, I must say that continuous learning, setting goals and meeting them keep me busy professionally. So much so that I would like for the World to know that Shevonica M. Howell is here! I have been teaching, tutoring & mentoring since the late 90s. I’ve served my country as a soldier in the United States Army (earning three medals & nine coins). I have earned degrees in business, marketing and education from 1995-2016. I have published three nonfiction/motivational books, a Word Search book, a Math Study Guide & two children’s books. I opened a private school that caters to kids in grades K-12. Last but definitely not least, I believe in paying it forward and I am a proud Mother & Grandmother. So yeah! It’s safe to say that I’ll be busy professionally for at least a few more years. 😍

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We would definitely have to visit my classroom/school while meeting the donor (Ms. Tucker). We would eat at Bob’s on Soutel because their ribtips are DELICIOUS! We would shop online for some Pretty Pieces (MB Banks). Being that I have to keep my wig done … I would be remiss not to introduce my friend to my stylists, Ms. Stacey at Main Connection and Ms. SheronDarknLovely for my braided styles. Prior to the pandemic, going to the theater was a past time but outside of that I was and AM A HOMEBODY!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to give a special shout out to those that have believed in my passion for teaching. I would like to also send a special thank you to my family and the many families that allowed me to teach because I love it.
