Hello My Name Is...

Richard Powers

Mr. Powers


I have been teaching 5th grade here in Pelham for 17 years. I received my degree in Elementary Education in 2001 at UAB. My wife, Shelly, and I have 2 teenagers of our own, Jackson(15) and Brylee(13). I really enjoy teaching American History using our ELA standards and I try to integrate these subjects as much as possible. When I am not at school I enjoy coaching/watching sports, playing golf and completing my honey do list around the house.
