My name is Susan Powell, and this will be my second year at Pleasant Hill Elementary School.  After graduating from Auburn University, my teaching career began in Arlington, TX where I taught 4th grade for ten years.  Next, we moved to Atmore, AL, my hometown, and I taught first grade prior to our move to the Memphis area.  I began teaching at DeSoto Central in 1999.  After having taught fourth grade as well as 7th English/Literature, I have taught gifted education for three years. I am excited about being your child’s spotlight teacher at Pleasant Hill.  I am married to Chris Powell, and we have 2 daughters.  Kathryn is a teacher at Horn Lake Middle School, and Caroline is a sophomore at Ole Miss. We have three pets:  Frisky, our Maine Coon; Shug, our minature poodle; and Jude, our toy poodle.

I LOVE college football ~  the Auburn Tigers are my favorite team!  I also enjoy watching all of the SEC games and look forward to football season beginning each fall.  I also enjoy spending time with my family, reading, Bible study, sewing, and monogramming. 

I look forward to getting to know each of you!  If you have any questions, you can email me by clicking on "contact me" below or calling our school to leave a message.
