Mrs. Julie Powell
Spring Wood Middle School
My name is Julie Powell, and I teach seventh grade Math and Pre-Algebra. I
earned my bachelor's degree in Mathematics Education from Northern Illinois
University in December, 2009. I always enjoyed math and knew that I wanted to
pursue a career in the field. However, it was not until I became a mother
that I decided I wanted to teach. I am married with one daughter who is ten
years old and in fifthh grade this year. I completed my student teaching
here at Spring Wood Middle School in eighth grade, and this is my fourth
year here teaching seventh grade.
I am the after school IMSA club teacher as well the Math Team Coach. This is
my first year on the PBIS committee, a team of teachers that work on
encouraging positive student behavior. This is my third year on the District
Math Committee that is dedicated to improving the Math program here at
District 20. I am also continuing my role as the 7th grade team leader for the
second year in a row.
