Hello! My name is Maggie Powell. I teach 2nd grade at IC Imagine. I was born and raised in Western, NC. I lived in Canton, NC until 3rd grade where I went to Bethel Christian Academy. Then in 4th grade I moved to Hayesville, NC. I was homeschooled for 3 years by my mom who is now a middle school math teacher! I graduated from Hayesville High School in 2011. My educational journey kept me in Western, NC, but took me to Mars Hill University. There I was a collegiate swimmer and earned my Bachelors degree summa cum laude in Elementary and Special Education and a Reading Specialization. I graduated in 2015. I am currently continuing my education at Western Carolina University to get my masters in Elementary Education with a concentration in reading.
I have two dogs and a husband who I love so much. My favorite things to do are cooking, hiking, and spending time outdoors with my husband and dogs.
This is my third year of teaching, and I absolutely LOVE it! I quickly realized after joining the ICI team that I had found the school I want to teach at for the rest of my life. I wholeheartedly support the mission of INVEST COLLEGIATE and believe that it embodies everything a school should be. As well as teaching 2nd grade I am also a member of the ICI Technology team where we are hard at work at providing our collegiate leaders with access to technology to use with their champions to create 21st century learners!
I look forward to working with your kids and getting to know you! If you have any questions please ask!
