Welcome to Fifth Grade for the 2018-2019 school year! I will be teaching Religion, Math, Science, and Social Studies to this year's fifth grade students. This is my 33rd year as an educator and my fifth year as a member of the faculty of Sacred Heart School. I love teaching today as much as I did when I started back in 1984. Being able to help my students learn not only the academics that are required but also help them to deepen their Christian faith makes life very fulfilling. I feel truly blessed to be a part of the education profession. I am a graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi where I received my B.S. in Education and William Carey University where I received my Master's in Education. I am married to Dr. Llewellyn Powell, DMD and we have resided in Southaven since 2006. We are blessed to be the parents of a very large family with four children, ten, soon to be eleven grandchildren, and one great grandchild. When I am not at work at SHS, I enjoy visiting our growing family! I also LOVE to cook and bake!! My other hobbies include traveling, sewing, embroidering, and monogramming special gifts for my family and friends.
Thank you again for sharing your precious children with me this year. I am looking forward to a fantastic school year full of faith, learning, and fun!
