Miss MaKenna Powell

Hi, I am Miss Powell!

I was born and raised in Southern California. After two years at a community college in Califoria I was given an academic and athletic scholarship to Grand Canyon University. While attending GCU I was apart of the Division 1 Track & Field team as a pole vaulter. Myself and my team were very successful, by the time I graduated I came home with 5 championship rings and a few individual medals. I graduated in December of 2018 with a Bachelors in Elementary Education. Since then I have become a certified Educator in the state of Arizona and am currently working towards my gifted certification. I have gained teaching experience working as a preschool teacher and director in California. I recently moved to Arizona in October of 2020 and started working as the long term substitute at Canyon Springs. I am excited to start my "first official" year of teaching as the Bright Child Kindergarten teacher. I cannot wait to help lay the foundation of your child's education.
