Mrs. Karen Powell
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year . . . I am so excited to work with you this year. This is my 2nd year as the OCS EC Teacher here at Cox Mill High School. I started my career in the private sector in accounting and I became a career switcher and entered into the educational field in 2008. I have been working as a special education teacher ever since. I love using my business experience as well as my experience as a teacher to teach my students. I have a Bachelors degree and a Master's degree. In my spare time, I love spending time with my family, reading, fishing, DIY's and line dancing.
One of my favorite quotes is: "Students don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care".
