Welcome to the website for Aisha Powell sharing her
work, research and passions.
This is me
Hello, my name is Aisha Powell and I am a researcher, journalist and business owner! I am currently a professor/instructor at Howard University teaching speech 101. I am also a third-year Ph.D. student at Howard University. My work explores culture in new media technologies and black representation in foreign countries around the world. I'm interested in "cancel/call-out" culture, black people's migration to Russia and the Soviet Union, and all things black feminist thought. Please contact me if you're interested in similar topics!
Being a well-rounded educator can make the key difference in the future success of the youth!
What good is learning if it cannot be applied? My teaching philosophy is to enable students to use learned skills from the classroom, in the real world. With my experience as both an elementary and collegiate educator, I've learned that although students may gain new knowledge in school, they aren't necessarily retaining information or see it as valuable on a day-to-day basis. My goal in the classroom is to make learning fun, accessible, and interesting and make it real, rational, and easily applicable to life. Each student should walk away with confidence in their craft, a new skill that benefits their life and feeling fulfilled with their education and its my job to ensure that!
