Mrs. Powers

Welcome to Family and Consumer Science! My name is Tonya Powers and I am so grateful to be teaching at James Kenan! I am a native of this great county, graduating from East Duplin in 2000. I graduated from UNCW in 2004, with a BA in Psychology and stayed in Wilmington for many years working for a corporation. My husband Brandon and I moved back to our roots in Duplin County, where I have owned my own business and worked for our county government. We have 2 girls and 1 boy, ages 3,6, and 9.

My plan is to contact each parent/guardian several times throughout the semester. However, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I am so excited to have been given this opportunity to teach your child in Foods and Nutrition, as well as Principles of Family and Human Resources. I cannot wait to grow and learn with your child. I am looking forward to a great year in Tigerland and plan on having lots of fun!!
