Mr. Tim Powell
My name is Tim Powell. This is my second year teaching and 2nd year at BVMS. My two courses are called 1) Introduction to Geography and 2) Mississippi Studies. I am pumped about getting this year started and expect it to be a phenomenal one!
I was born and raised in Gulfport, and graduated from Gulfport High. I earned a degree in history from the University of Southern Mississippi - to the top! then backpacked through Europe alone for 2 months and visited 7 different countries. My students often hear many of the stories from my experience. Currently, I am working on completing a novel based on my travel experiences as well as earning my Masters in Teaching from William Carey University.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing the guitar, hitting the gym, fishing, writing, and spending time with people I care about. I love history, I love to read, I love to teach, and I love my students.
My class is not easy. It is rigorous, reading and writing intensive, and will force students to develop the grit to carry them through high school and beyond. My expectation for students is to score an 80 or better on all assignments. If a student is struggling and shows the initiative by coming to me, I am willing to make myself available during elective time, before &/or after school, as well as on the weekend or over holidays (1+ parent must be present) to provide additional support as needed.
I'm looking forward to a phenomenal year! Thank you in advance for your support!
