Richard Powers, Owner



I graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso with a degree in Kinesiology and Sports Studies. For the past 20 years I have been employed as a teacher and coach with the El Paso Independent School District. During this time I have enjoyed working with children from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. I have been enriched by their many cultures and blessed by being a part of their growth. Working with children in the class room and on the sports field has given me a great opportunity to see how children adapt best to their environment and which teaching styles promote positive learning and emotional stability. During my employment I met my wife and partner, Patricia Powers. We have been blessed with five boys, Richard Powers IV, David Powers, Steven Powers, Patrick Powers, and Ernesto Powers. The experiences my wife and I have gained as teachers and parents motivated us to open a business where we can continue to have a positive impact on children�s lives.


Patricia Powers, Owner


I was raised in Presidio, Texas, a small town south of El Paso. I came to El Paso to attend UTEP and I received a Bachelors degree in Early Childhood and Bilingual Education. At age 21, I began teaching Pre-Kindergarten. I have been teaching for 16 years and I truly love it. As a child I always knew I wanted to be surrounded by children. When I married my husband, we made a decision to form a Kindergarten of our own; we now have 5 boys. As a mother, I understand the hardship of finding a loving and safe place to leave your children. This has inspired me to create a place where parents can trust that their children will be well taken care of. By providing a caring staff and home cooked meals, I want the children to feel safe like home. I believe my purpose in life is to care for and nurture children. A child is the ultimate gift a person can receive, and are the HEART of the world, without them life would have little meaning. It is a privilege to be able to serve God�s smallest children.


Kimberly Guy-Munoz, Assistant Director


I have worked in Children�s Education for 20 years. I started in Phoenix, Arizona, where I was a Center Director for 6 years. Then I moved to Denver, Colorado and worked with severe special needs children in the public school classroom setting. I recently moved back to El Paso, where I became Director-qualified and started working with Power Kidz. In my spare time, when I am not helping children learn, I enjoy reading, biking or hiking.
