Before coming to Gettysburg in 2008, Dave Powell taught high school social studies for six years in suburban Atlanta, where he earned a certificate from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards in 2004. He likes the Atlanta Braves and the Georgia Bulldogs and has a not insignificant amount of Tribe Pride; he spends his free time questioning the judgment of umpires and listening to music. He lives in Gettysburg with a strong woman and four above average children—just please don't ask for the test scores to prove it.
Dr. Powell is serving as Resident Director of the Gettysburg in England program in the fall of 2017. He will be on sabbatical in the spring of 2018.
