Mrs. Donna Powell - Guidance Counselor
I have been a teacher in the Portsmouth Schools for the past twenty nine years. My teaching career began as a resource teacher at the Portsmouth Middle School in grades 5 and 6. Then, I taught both first grade and second grade for thirteen years at Melville School. For the past two years, I have been an interventionist teaching students in kindergarten and first grade.
Currently, I am the school guidance counselor supporting students throughout the day, whether it is with a student individually, in small groups, or in the classroom. My primary goal is to help your child be successful both academically and socially. Some of the topics that I cover include how to manage emotions, maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to getting to know all the students at Melville.
