Meet the Instructor:

Welcome to Kent Transition Center Automotive class.  My name is Clayton Powell.  Teaching is a rewarding field.  I am in this profession for the students.  I love seeing that moment when the students grasp a concept and really get excited about their learning.   This is my fifteen year teaching automotive technology.  I have been with KTC for the past three years.  Before I started teaching I was a automobile technician at a local General Motors dealership.  I hold ASE certifications in Brakes, Electrical, Engine Repair, Engine Performance, Steering/Suspension and Maintenance and Light Repair.  I am married with two children, 7 year old son and a 5 year old daughter.  Out side of class as a family we love to camp.  Over the last couple years we have traveled more then 12,000 with camper in tow.
