About the Teacher

Hello Mateys! 

I am the Captain of this ship and my name is Ms. Powell!  I am 24 years old and am a recent honor graduate of Jacksonville State University! This is my first year teaching and am very excited to embark on this journey with my very first class! A few things that I like are sports, such as basketball, baseball and football; hiking, kayaking, traveling, making music, reading and writing. I have been to two countries outside of the U.S.A. The countries I have visited are Nicaragua and England! I also really enjoy teaching as well as learning! I believe that every good teacher must be a continual learner! As you grow and learn I will be doing the exact same thing! 

 I am so honored and pleased to have you as well as your parents aboard this year! I know that this year, in third grade, there will be lots of fun and exciting learning going on! I plan on taking you on many adventures to advance your knowledge in all areas but especially Reading, English Language Arts and Writing! I know that this year, when we all give our best, our treasure, in the classroom will be abundant. Our treasure is our knowledge. Knowledge is the richest treasure any Pirate could have! I look forward to traveling through learning with you this year! 

If you need to contact me you can do so via email at Brittany.powell@carrolltoncityschools.net or via phone at the extension 4926! I would love to help as well as answer any questions you may have!
