Speaker Biography: Carmen Powell, children’s author and professional educator

Carmen Powell

As a professional educator, with a passionate belief in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) philosophy and approach Carmen Powell established productive relationships with stakeholders, collaborating across all professional levels and with parents. When educating young children, it is vital to incorporate parents into the learning process. Ofsted noted her relationship with parents as ‘exemplary,’ which is a true point of pride for her. 

She has three children’s books published, ‘Matthew and the Magic Goat’, ‘Sprite and the Two Talking Turtles’ and ‘Sprite’s Christmas Flight’. The books focus on inclusion, to support children’s personal, social and emotional development as well as their communication and language skills.

Service has always been very important to her. She volunteered at the Bulembu School in Eswatini, assisting with curriculum development. She also volunteered at Epsom RDA, supporting disabled children. Currently, she is a trustee for an educational charity.
