Ms. Becky Powell
My name is Becky Powell.

"My philosophy of education is that all children are unique and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. It is my desire to create this type of atmosphere where students can meet their full potential. I will provide a safe environment where students are invited to share their ideas. I believe the teacher's role is to act as a guide. Students need to have access to hands-on activities and a should be able to have choices and let their curiosity direct their learning. Students need the opportunity to practice skills in a safe environment.
