Name: Betty PowellEmail:Subject(s): Biology / Honor Biology / Physical ScienceMs. Betty Padgett PowellBiologyGraduated from Campbell UniversityB.S. in Secondary Science EducationHello, my name is Betty Padgett Powell and I look forward to our journey together this school year. I have been teaching in the Duplin County School System for the past 35 years. I am committed to helping my students learn, apply and enjoy science! My reward comes from seeing past students some now teachers, parents, community leaders, nurses, owners of businesses, etc. approach me and remind me of something they studied or did when they were in my class. I try very hard to help my students become science literate so they will become more informed citizens.Other duties at W-RH include being chairman of the science department, primetime leader, School Improvement Team, STEM leadership, and Beekeeper. I have 4 grown children (all who graduated from W-RH) and 2 grandchildren.
