Mrs. Powell - Title 1/Literacy Coach
Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! I’m Wendee Powell and I'm a Title Teacher/Literacy Coach at Longfellow Elementary. I graduated from Gering High School in 1998 and moved to Lincoln, Nebraska to study Elementary Education at UNL. In 2002, I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in May and married my high school sweetheart, Scott, in June. I began my teaching career at Elliott Elementary in Lincoln, where I taught 3rd and 4th grade for two years and 1st grade for three years. In 2006 we had our first beautiful daughter Claire, who is now a third grader at Westmoor. In 2008, we added our hilarious and fun-loving daughter Ella to the family. She is now a first grader at Longfellow this year. We then packed our bags, car, and house and moved 6 hours west to live closer to family. Since then we have added our sweet baby girl Avery, who is now 3.5 years old. Also in 2008, I began teaching at Westmoor Elementary for 6 years before moving to Longfellow as a Literacy Caoch. In 2013, I received my master's degree as a Reading Specialist. In our spare time, we love traveling to Estes Park, Colorado. We enjoy “Soccer Saturdays” and going on family walks in the evenings. We also love to cheer on the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Colorado Avalanche any time we can. Currently this is my first year at Westmoor and I love every minute of it!! Thanks for sharing your children with me; it sure is a rewarding place to come each day!
