    About Mrs. Garrett: 
    This will be my seventeenth year teaching at Powdersville Elementary. Prior to that, I taught 6th grade at Pickens Middle School.  I am a 1992 graduate of Southern Wesleyan University where I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education. In 2013, I also earned National Board Certification in Literacy.
    My husband, Rusty, and I love to travel in our  RV and have visited 36 of our beautiful 50 states! Our home base is right here in Powdersville. I love my town and I love my students. In my classroom, I strive to form a loving, learning community where everyone feels safe.
