Jenny Powell

Hello, friends! My name is Jenny Powell. This is my 10th year as an educator and my 4th year as the literacy coach at Saxe Gotha Elementary School. While I currently reside in Lexington, SC, I grew up in Prosperity, SC where I attended Newberry College for my undergraduate studies. At Newberry College, I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education with add-ons in Early Childhood Education and Middle-Level ELA. I began my teaching career as a sixth grade ELA teacher at Saluda Middle School in 2011. I transferred to Pleasant Hill Middle School in 2013 and taught seventh grade ELA for four years. In August of 2014, I earned my Master's Degree in Language and Literacy from the University of South Carolina and received my certification as a reading teacher. When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Travis, and my son, Ryder. I am so excited to spend another school year helping teachers grow readers and writers at SGE.
