Mrs. Semone Liquet

Mrs. Balthazar-Liquet is a 5th Grade Teacher all the way from Canada. She has been teaching for over 10 years, and LOVES every minute of her career! 

My Play-losophy:

Children learn through what they do hands on, interacting with their peers, through PLAY based activities across all subject areas, rather than sitting and listening to a teacher lecture for 8 hours a day.

Mrs. Blair Yarborough

Mrs. Yarborough grew up in Clayton (once a small town), North Carolina, where she was an avid volleyball, basketball, and softball player. One of her high school teachers encouraged her to pursue college and a career in education. Mrs. Yarborough then moved to Raleigh, NC, to attend Meredith College for four years. She is very grateful for her college experience, which allowed her to travel to New York City and also study in Australia for a month. At Meredith, she earned a degree in English and a 6-9 Language Arts teaching license, and soon developed a passion for helping students grow academically and encouraging them to develop a positive mindset. She has taught at Ligon GT Magnet Middle School, Oberlin Magnet Middle School, and Wendell Middle School. Mrs. Yarborough felt the calling to join elementary school, and is very excited to be joining Powell for her tenth year of teaching! In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family and five dogs, relaxing at the beach, and being a lifelong learner.

My Play-losophy:

Play creates a fun, dynamic environment that allows students to develop critical thinking and communication skills. Collaborative hands-on activities encourage students to become more invested in their learning and also presents more opportunities to grow as creative problem-solvers.
