Welcome to my classroom website! I'm Mrs. Powell and I was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. My husband and I have a daughter who just turned 1 year old. I have always known that I wanted to become a teacher and now I am living the dream. Throughout my life I have found myself working with people with exceptional needs and find this to be my true passion. Before I went back to school for my Masters in Teaching I worked at an early intervention center for children with Autism ages birth to three. For many years, and still currently, I coach Special Olympics and participate in other activities with the Seattle Parks and Recreation Adults Specialized Programs.
My intention for this website is to share information about what our amazing students at Cascade are doing through photos and general classroom information. I also hope to continue to build more resources on this website for families to access information about special education resources at school and in their community.
Let's work together to foster independence, communication skills, and a sense of belonging for our students here at Cascade and as life long learners!
