Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. J. Powers
My name is Jennifer Powers, and I teach 8th grade SC History here at Southside Middle School. I have been teaching for 7 years, and I enjoy working with children and motivating them to reach their potential. I have a passion for history, and I want to share that passion and enthusiasm with my students. I will do all that I can to ensure that your child’s experience in my class is fun and positive. My ultimate goal is to motivate your child to become a lifelong learner. I love history and I want to make my class as enjoyable and relevant as possible.
I grew up in Pamplico, SC and graduated from Hannah-Pamplico High School. I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree from Francis Marion University, and recieved my education certification through the South Carolina PACE program.
I have a wonderful husband, two children, and a dog. I enjoy being outdoors and spending time with my family. During the summer, I spend a lot of my time visiting family at the beach because it is one of my favorite places to go.
I look forward to getting to know all of you this school year!
