My name is Missy Powell-Riedl and I am a kindergarten teacher. This will be my twenty-eighth year teaching. I moved to Newport News in 2003 and having been teaching KA at Burbank for the past 16 years. I grew up in Arkansas, and attended the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville where I studied elementary education. When I’m not at Burbank, I enjoy gardening, hiking, biking, riding rides at Busch Gardens and traveling with my two sons and husband. My mission is to pass on my love of learning (especially Math) to the next generation enabling them to better their future through education. I want the children I teach to love learning so much that they will never stop. I’m looking forward to having another great year of learning and growing together in KA.

I have been teaching at Burbank for 13 years! I especially enjoy seeing students eagerness to learn and growth in reading!
