     Welcome to the 2016-17 School Year at California Elementary!  I am Mrs. Arleen Powell, a Learning Support teacher at California Elementary.  In the Fall of 1999, I began calling this school, "my home".  Throughout the years that I have been in the California Area School District, I have taught Learning Support students in reading, math, grammar, and spelling for grades 1 through 5.  It's been a joy to work with the students and I really look forward to getting to know your children this school year!  
    Prior to teaching for the California Area School District I was an educator of Early Childhood students for Intermediate Unit #1 for four years.  Before that, I taught in Washington State for 17 years in a variety of special education settings for the Chehalis School District.  I graduated with my Bachelors of Special Education degree from Central Washington University in 1977 and a Masters of Education  from University of Portland in Oregon.
    We have a lot to look forward to this school year!  I'm very excited to work with your children and to see their growth and progress.  Please feel free to call me at 724-785-5800 X 2107 if you have questions or concerns.  If you call during the school day, when I am teaching,  I will return your call as soon as I am able.  You can also e-mail me at powella@calsd.org.  
    Thank you and have a great year!
