I am Dr. Amanda Powell

Welcome to Dr. Powell's Class

I am a Joplin native, born and raised in Southwest Missouri. I was raised in a big family that valued faith and family. Having spent years watching my Mom teach I decided I too wanted to become a teacher. I attended Missouri Southern State University where I earned my Bachelor of Social Science Education and began my career in Niangua, Missouri teaching 7th-12th grade Social Studies and coaching volleyball. I pursued my MA in History at Missouri State University, my Education Specialist Degree at William Woods, and most recently my Doctorate in Education at William Woods University. I completed my doctoral studies in July 2016.
This is my 12th year in education. My career has included a summer teaching English in Viet Nam, coaching volleyball and basketball, some time in administration, and three years teaching both Dual Credit and AP courses. It has been a wonderful career and I look forward to my year at University Academy.
I will be teaching World Geography in the Middle School as well as World History and African American Studies in the Upper School.
