Hi Everyone! My name is Joanna Powell. I have been a teacher at Tanglewood for 23 years. I was a first grade teacher for an amazing 20 years. This is my 3rd year in Second grade.  I am looking forward to a great year and experience. 

A little info about me: I have been a teacher for 23 years. I am originally from Clarion, PA (very small town above Pittsburgh, PA). I received my BS in Elementary Education/Early Childhood from Edinboro University of PA and my Master's Degree in Elementary Education at UNCP. I am the 2018-2019 Tanglewood Teacher of the Year and am one of finalists for Teacher of the Year for Robeson county.

I am a proud military spouse. I have been married for 21 years to my husband, SFC Marvin Powell who is part of the 82nd Airborne and National Guard. I have 2 wonderful sons - Noah who is a Sophmore at LHS and Elijah who is in 4th grade at Liitlefield.

I am looking forward to having a great year with your child!!
