Mrs. Jimell Powell

My name is Mrs. Jimell Powell and I teach Culinary Arts at Jasper High School in Jasper, Texas.  

I have over 20 years of experience in the Education Business across the great state of Texas.  I was born in Houma, Louisiana and moved to Texas in the 5th grade.  I grew up in the San Antonio area and moved to Southeast Texas in 1999.  I am married to my husband, Ryan Powell, and have one son, Brayden. I am an outdoor person and have learned how to take the passion of cooking with me.  I have competed in chuckwagon style cooking and also had a catering business.  

I had many great people in my life to help encourage me in my job career.  With my love of cooking that my mother, grandmother and aunt shared,  I now have the privilege of sharing my passion with others. While at Jasper High School, my goal is to educate students of culinary techniques and the love of cooking.
