Principal's Corner

Principal's Message

My name is Beth Schwartz and I am the principal of Powers Elementary School. I am proud to be a member of such a great school! At Powers Elementary, we work hard to provide each student with a quality education and the skills needed for future success.

I love sharing the good things we are doing at Powers. You can follow me on Twitter @Mrs_Schwartz for updates, pictures, and information about the fun things we are doing at school.


My teaching career began in special education. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in special education from Bowling Green State University. I was an intervention specialist with the Huron City Schools for five years. I then came to Amherst, where I taught special education at Nord Middle School for seven years. During my teaching career, I was very proud to earn my National Board Certification. I then earned my Master's Degree in Educational Administration from Ashland University. In August of 2011, I began serving as principal at Harris Elementary School and just transitioned to Powers Elementary School this summer. I have continued my education through Kent State University. We never stop learning!
