Ms. Powers Class

Hi! My name is Ms. Powers and I am so excited to be teaching third grade at Turrill.    It’s going to be a fun year full of lots of learning and new adventures and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us.  I want to know all about you, but first I’m going to tell you a few things about me.

I was born and raised in Romeo, Michigan and I am the second oldest of four.  I have 2 children, a son Joshua and a daughter Felicia.  I am also a proud grandma with 4 grandchildren Elizabeth 16, Oliver 3 1/2, Sebastian 2, and Declan 1 year old.   I live in Capac with Cobbler, my pet cat and Lucy, my pet dog.  I have 6 honey bee hives.    I will share more of my beekeeping adventures with you this year.

I graduated from Oakland University with a degree in elementary education and a major in mathematics.  I received a master’s degree in early childhood education from Oakland and a master’s degree in teaching from Marygrove College. 

This is my 26th year teaching first grade in Lapeer.  I have taught kindergarten, fourth grade, fifth grade, sixth grade and adult education. This is my first year teaching third grade.  I am so excited to be part of it!

Please feel free to contact me at Turrill, 667-2438 and my extension is 4521, or by email at

Looking forward to a great year,

Ms. Powers
