Shayla Powell

ShaylaPowellShayla is an Itinerant Resource Teacher in Equity and Inclusion for the SCDSB, which is part of the Student Success team. She works with staff and students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 to break down non-academic barriers to student success.

Every day is different, which is one of the many things she love about her job. It includes planning and presenting, as well as working collaboratively with staff and students in a variety of settings.

Shayla became a teacher to make a difference, especially for at-risk youth. She wanted to work with students who were struggling with engagement, and become someone’s champion.

Besides work, Shayla is passionate about family, art, and yoga. In her spare time, she spends time with her fiancé and 2-year-old son. They live in Wasaga Beach and take advantage the beautiful beach and trails whenever they can.
