Kari (Gage) Powell


Hello! I can’t wait to begin my first year at McCarroll. This will be my 7th year of teaching in public schools. I was born and raised in Decatur, and I am so thrilled to be in my hometown. A few details about me are that I love Harry Potter (see my classroom), and I love to travel. My favorite place I have been is London. Just a note about me: I got married this past summer and some of information will say Kari Gage. That is me, and we are working to get everything switched over to Kari Powell. Thank you for your patience during this transition.

I look forward to sharing my love of reading and writing with you this year and getting to know each of you. Please contact me any time if you have questions, concerns, or celebrations about your child.


I am available by appointment Monday-Friday after school after school from 3:30-4 pm.
