Tonja Davis

Davis, Tonja

Student & Family Advocate

We are fortunate to live in this beautiful city which is teaming with opportunity, however, though we are an attractive haven which has prompted many to relocate to our city, it has created a challenge for many of our families who are struggling to raise children and thrive amidst the rapid growth. As an advocate for students and families, I act as a link between home and school and community in providing service and interventions which identify and eliminate barriers to students’ academic achievement and their healthy social emotional development. In my role I often have access to resources which connect families in transition or temporary hardship in support of housing costs, food, clothing and other barriers to student achievement. If you are currently in need of support and/or referrals to resources related to housing instability, food insecurity, behavioral health or other needs Please contact me at 206-605-3412 or

Personal Message

My name is Anna Howell, and I am excited to be joining the Meany Middle School next school year. I have been teaching high school history for 13 years. I spent three years teaching in Colorado and the past ten years teaching at Rainier Beach High School here in Seattle. The majority of the past 13 years has been working with ninth grade students. During my time at Rainier Beach, I have served as the History Department Chair, Career Ladder Teacher, and Instructional Council and achieved my National Boards. As a high school teacher joining a middle school, I hope to bring a specific lens to the team.

I look forward to working with a diverse group of students at Meany and preparing them for high school and beyond. I provide engaging, active lessons connecting the material to current events. I aim to create a student driven dialogue and believe when you walk into my classroom you hear more student voice than adult voice. Fostering this culture in the classroom gives the students the power to own their learning.

When not at school I like to spend time outside with my husband Justin and two sons Swift and Ewan hiking, skiing and biking.
