Real Estate

The Powell Team has been busy! I’ve been helping a first time home buyer find a property in eastern El Dorado County, while my mom’s La Crescenta listing in Cameron Park is now in contract and she has another Cameron Park property coming soon. If you’re thinking of buying or selling in the East Bay, El Dorado County, Placer County, or nearby areas, we are ready to assist you.

New Services

Last week I presented my Dyslexia 101 presentation to 40 teachers at the El Dorado County Office of Education and Charter Home School Academy. I covered the brain basis of dyslexia, strengths and weaknesses, red flags, accommodations, accessible curricula and materials, teaching strategies, and ways to learn more. For a list of other recent presentations I’ve given and more information about my professional development services, go here.
