Bio

My name is Amy Powers and I teach small group Special Education here at Leeds High School. I am an alumni of LHS from the class of 1994 and am very excited to be able to teach in the school system and the town that I have called home for most of my life. I have always felt that my calling has been to work with students that need that extra bit of encouragement and assistance to help them reach their goals in school and in life.  It warms my heart every day to see the students that I work with accomplish tasks that will help them in the future.

Here is a little about who I am and what I do when not at school:

I have been married to my husband Jeff for almost 20 years.  We have two daughters, Haley who is 16 and in the 11th grade here at LHS, and Hayden Claire who is 12 and in the 7th grade at LMS.  When we are not attending football games for Haley to cheer on the football team with the varsity cheer squad and Hayden Claire to assist the majorettes, or at track/cross country meets for me to coach the LHS track/cross country teams and at USA Track and Field meets cheering on Hayden Claire we love to spend our time at our second home Disney World.  We have been fortunate enough that our girls have gotten to grow up going to Disney and experiencing all the magic and wonder that it entails. It is truly our "happy place" when school is not in session.

I look forward to a magical school year with your students!
