HS GALS Series 9 & 10, Spanish
Hannah Powers is thrilled to join the GALS team as the 9th and 10th grade GALS series teacher, and the Spanish 1 teacher. She grew up in Richmond, Virginia, and learned Spanish in school there. She attended George Mason University for a B.A. in English - Non-fiction Writing, and subsequently, for an M.Ed. in ESL Curriculum and Instruction. She has taught in Fairfax County Public Schools, Jefferson County, and is excited to teach in DPS. Hannah adores teaching language, and loves sharing culture, language and all of the beautiful mess of both in the classroom. She is thankful that GALS has given her the opportunity to include social, emotional, relational wellness in education through the GALS Series classes, and she looks forward to connecting students with their community through this class. Her passions in education are culture, social justice, and family engagement. Hannah is the oldest of three sisters, a foodie, a dog lover, and a huge ice hockey fan. Go Capitals!
