Mr. Preston Powell, a new teacher here at Springville High, is excited to teach students how to become efficient in Digital Media. Mr. Powell teaches Digital Media I and he’s very experienced teacher. After graduating from Utah Valley University in the Spring of 2010, Powell did some freelancing until he realized that he loved to teach. He started by teaching at UVU as a Digital Media professor and moved on from there. Now, he is teaching his 4th year at Nebo’s Advanced Learning Center and also teaching at SHS.
Mr. Powell is excited to see what his students will create in Digital Media. There are many things to create in the class, such as 2D animations, 3D graphics, audio, and so much more. His vision for students is to prepare them for college and for careers in Digital Media. Some advice he would like to give to students is to “Never give up on your dreams.” Powell’s favorite quote is, “Do or do not, there is no try”--Yoda.
If Powell could go anywhere during Christmas, he would choose Basel, Switzerland. He is married to his wife, Jessica, and has a dog named Ruby who is half pointer, half golden lab, and 100 percent angel. He also has a cat named Lukie who is not an angel. He loves Star Wars and is excited for the new Star Wars movie to come out.
