¿Quién soy yo?
¡Hola! Me llamo Señora Powell. I live in the community, part of which makes it a joy to teach at Har-Bur Middle School. I have been teaching Spanish many years in many places including Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, California and several schools in Connecticut (Have I really been around that long?). Before coming to Region 10 and Lewis Mills High School, I taught grade 6 Spanish in Simsbury. I am delighted to be in the middle school where we can have fun learning Spanish in a variety of interactive ways. Besides my daughter who recently graduated from LSM, I have 2 older children who are graduates of Region 10. They include one who went on to eventually major in Spanish (no influence on my part whatsoever:), to teach English in Madrid for 3 years, pursue a Master's Degree in Social Work from Tulane University in New Orleans, and now serves bilingual refugees from South America. My son has begun to study Spanish for his own pleasure at age29! I look forward to a great year working with all of you!
