Mr. Tim Powell


My name is Tim Powell. I was born and raised in Gulfport, and graduated from Gulfport High. My degree is in history from the University of Southern Mississippi - to the top! and am currently working on my Masters in Teaching. I am a first year teacher at BVMS teaching 8th Grade Mississippi Studies and Introduction to Geography. I am pumped to get this year started and expect it to be an phenomenal one!

In my spare time, I enjoy playing the guitar, hitting the gym, fishing, working on a book I plan to publish, 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 though high school and beyond. I further expect my students to score an 80 or better on all assignments. If a student is struggling, I will make myself available outside of regular class time to provide additional support as needed.

I'm looking forward to a phenomenal year! Thank you for your support.
