My name is Jolene Powell, and I am the Intermediate Special Education Teacher here at A.J. West. This is my 21st year in education! I earned my Bachelor's Degree in 1997 from Western Washington University, and I later earned my Master's Degree in 2002 from Grand Canyon University. I achieved National Board Certification in Early/Middle Childhood Literacy in 2006 and recertified in 2015. My most recent education includes adding my special education endorsement to my teaching certificate through Seattle Pacific University.
When I'm not at school, I'm with my two busy kids who also attend schools in Aberdeen.
