Back To School: Supporting A Second Classroom in Midlothian

The Powell Law Group is excited to announce that this year, we’ll be sponsoring not one- BUT TWO CLASSROOMS in the Chesterfield County Public School system!

School supplies collected for Chesterfield Middle School

With most teachers spending an average of $479 of their own income on supplies for their students and classroom, we began helping a middle school classroom near us.  Thank you for all your amazing help! 

These supplies will be going to Ms. Wyatt's class this week to help her get ready for the first day of school, September 4th. Learn about our second classroom below!


Ms. Jordan Liesfeld, a first year Biology teacher at Midlothian High School

In addition to Ms. Wyatt from Robious Middle School, we will be sponsoring Ms. Jordan Liesfeld, a first year Biology teacher at Midlothian High School! Ms. Liesfeld graduated from Randolph-Macon College with a major in biology and a minor in secondary education.

The Powell Law Group is excited to be partnering with both of these talented new educators in preparing their students for a successful school year. As a high school teacher, Ms. Liesfeld has different needs for her classroom than what we’ve listed for the middle school classroom we’re sponsoring. She will be helping students understand concepts like the scientific method, cells, photosynthesis, and ecology through hands on lessons and labs!

High school is when you can really start to follow your own passions, taking the classes that you want and exploring the world outside of your school. Whether it is what work you’ll do or what you’ll study in college, high school is a really important time to expose you to the ideas and information that spark that kind of interest. I hope that in sponsoring her classroom, we can continue to provide Ms. Liesfeld with all the resources and support she needs to help her students prepare for their future.

Ms. Wyatt

Did you know that most teachers spend an average of $479 of their own income on supplies for their students and classroom?

The Powell Law Group is excited to announce that this year, we’ll be sponsoring a classroom in the Chesterfield County Public School system!  We will be sponsoring Ms. Madeline Wyatt, a second year Latin teacher at Robious Middle School! Ms. Wyatt graduated from Randolph-Macon College with majors in both Latin and Classics and minors in Secondary Education and Archeology.

How can you help?

1. Donate supplies from the comfort of your own home through our Amazon Wish List

We wanted to sponsor a classroom because we understand that parents and teachers alike are required to buy lots of supplies for their classes, and the cost adds up. I am a product of a public-school education, and I’m a father and grandfather. My staff is made up of moms and dads too, and we all agree that the only thing a teacher should have to worry about is being a great educator and a great role model. We see it as a small investment in a classroom for a big investment in the future of education and the future of our Chesterfield County Public Schools

Powell School Supply Drive

Educators dedicate their lives to helping children and young adults grow, learn, and reach their full potential as thinkers and as people. At the Powell Law Group, we want the teachers in our community to know that the time and money they spend giving our students the best education, the best activities, and the best support to help them succeed, matters to us. Setting up a teacher for a year of success is helping set up a child for a lifetime of success.

Our school supply drive is only the beginning- we’ll be sharing updates from Ms. Wyatt’s classroom and activities throughout the school year, so there will be additional opportunities to donate again. We understand that teacher and student needs change as the year goes on- so we’re here to help all year!
