Hello! Welcome to Petersburg Primary. My name is Nancy R. Powell. I graduated from Coker College with a degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I also have a minor in Spanish. I am currently finishing up my Masters in Educational Administration and taking ESL certification classes. This is my third year teaching first grade, and I absolutely enjoy it.
I am Mexican-American, meaning that I speak both English and Spanish. I love to eat, read, sing, travel, and learn new things. I love sea creatures, especially sea turtles. My favorite color is blue and my favorite movie is War Room. My favorite children’s book is Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. My favorite food is anything with chicken. My favorite desserts are a tres leches cake and a hot fudge brownie with vanilla ice cream. I also love sour worms and Twix.
In the classroom I hope to create a safe and fun learning environment for your child, as well as respect and appreciation for a new language – Spanish – and those who speak it. To do this, and to meet the needs of everyone involved, I will be speaking both languages in the classroom. Due to this, your child may be coming home saying a few Spanish words/phrases and vice versa! J
