Kendra Powers grew up in Spokane, Washington, with her parents and twin sister. At 19, she moved to England, participating in a work abroad program where she had the opportunity to work with students with neurological motor impairments, inspiring her passion for teaching and helping others.
Once returning to the states, she attended Eastern Washington University, receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Therapeutic Recreation. In the years following, she worked as a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Therapist in facilities with an emphasis in psychiatric care and adaptive recreation.
Kendra moved to Hawai’i in 2017 and now resides in Kamuela with her partner and stepson. Continuing her passion for teaching and working with children, she returned to school and received a Master of Arts in Elementary Education. She has found her happy place in the classroom and enjoys watching students grow throughout the year, the opportunity to refine her craft and find new ways to grow to make a difference in every student.
