Mrs. Powell

It is an honor to be part of the Hale Heroes family!! Welcome to an exciting year in Powell's Groovy Pad!

My background, a little bit about me: I am a proud "Army Brat," having spent many childhood years in Germany and all over the United States, and I am a proud veteran who spent seven years in the Army as a musician. It was a wonderful experience to have lived overseas in Germany, Italy, and Japan, and all across the United States, including 4 years in Alaska. I hold a BS in Psychology, MEd in Early Childhood Education, and I am a National Board Certified Teacher. I enjoy pro football - the Steelers are my team, finding the BEST pizza joints in town, listening to 70's music, rainy days, drinking coffee, and reading.

My oldest son, Nick, is a GA Tech graduate with a degree in Chemical and Bio-molecular Engineering. He lives in Houston,Texas, loves his job as a chemical engineer, and enjoys playing and listening to music. My youngest son, Zak, is a 2017 graduate of Red Mountain High School and is pursuing a degree in Criminal Justice at MCC. He enjoys video gaming, weight lifting, and playing the drums and guitar. My step‐son, Logan, is a graduate from Colorado State University and Second Lieutenant in the Army. He is married to his beautiful wife, Sara, and they live in Loveland, CO. My amazing husband is a retired Army Officer who served our country for 20 years, and is a doctor of Naturopathic Medicine. We enjoy hiking, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.  We have a ragdoll cat named, Finnigan, and we are expecting to bring home a Welsh Terrier this fall!

This will be my 14th year teaching with experience in 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 6th grades. Past experience includes assistance with Gifted & Talented,  working with very low achieving students in an after‐school setting, working as a teacher’s aid, and three years as a substitute teacher, teaching all grades K‐12.  

My classroom promotes a positive mindset, fun and laughter with learning, and I enjoy when the students are as enthusiastic about learning as I am! My expectations are set very high, but with hard work and perseverance, ANYTHING can be achieved!!! I look forward to our collaboration ensuring your child reaches their fullest potential.

Please know that my door is always open. Your input into your child's education is valued, and I look forward to a year of fun and learning with your child! My preferred method of communication is email - Please email me at with any questions or concerns you may have.

Fun Stuff We Do!
