Brittany Powers

Teacher/Mentor

Brittany is passionate about reaching every learner wherever he or she is on the educational journey. She has known that teaching is her calling since an early age when she pestered her parents to play school and teach them letters and phonics. She studied English with an emphasis in Creative Writing at the University of Memphis as an undergraduate, also earning minors in History and French. She was published in the first edition of the University of Memphis undergraduate literary magazine In Pieces. She began teaching immediately upon completion of her Bachelor of Arts degree, while also studying Instruction and Curriculum Leadership as a graduate student. Brittany has a personal interest in mental health advocacy and social justice, and she spends her spare time with her husband, daughter, and as many pets as the household will allow!
