Welcome from Principal Howard

Principal Howard

Welcome to North Tama Community School District’s Junior High & High School!

My name is Taylor Howard and I serve as the 7-12 Principal for North Tama. It is an honor to serve the students, staff, and families of North Tama. 

I grew up in Buckingham, Iowa and attended Iowa State University for my undergraduate degree. I attended Buena Vista University where I obtained my Masters in Education (Special Education). I have also attended Northwestern College where I obtained my Masters Degree in Educational Administration.    

Attending North Tama from kindergarten to graduation, I know how much this school district means to the people of Traer, Buckingham, Clutier, and Dinsdale. The staff of North Tama and I strive every day to do what is best for our students and communities. 

Please reach out to me if you have any questions you might have about North Tama. 

Go Redhawks!
