Greene Lamp Welcomes New Head Start/ Early Head Start Assistant Director

Theresa “Kim” Bynum- Powell
Welcome Aboard!



Theresa “Kim” Bynum-Powell’s passion for Early Childhood Education began in 2005 at The Sunshine House Daycare Center in High Point, NC, where she worked as an Infant/Toddler Teacher.  The following year she graduated from North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology.  In 2009, she continued her work in early childhood education as a NC Pre-K Teacher Assistant and Substitute Bus Driver.  To further her career, she completed the Praxis Exam and taught Kindergarten at Creekside Elementary School in Winterville, NC for several years.  Although she loved teaching in the public school system, her servant heart was for low-income children and families, hence the start of her Head Start Career in 2016 as the Early Childhood Development Manager at Economic Improvement Council, Inc. (EIC), where she supervised more than fifty (50) staff in a three (3) county service area for two (2) years. 

Ms. Powell still committed to the “Ministry” of Head Start, deemed it necessary to step out on faith into a “new season” and on “new land”, as she became employed at GLHS in 2018, as the Education/CLASS-Program Specialist.  Though still considered as the “new kid on the block”, Ms. Powell made her mark early on as she accomplished one of the HS program’s long-standing goal when she became its’ first CLASS Reliable Observer!!!  With the heart to do more and in recognizing that “God does not give us the spirit of fear”, she boldly applied for the Assistant Director position and was chosen.  Ms. Powell states, “I may not have all the knowledge, experience, or qualifications one might deem necessary from the natural eye, I have what it will take to get me there; the belief that I can do all things through Jesus Christ that strengthens me”!  

Greene Lamp Head Start/ Early Head Start would like to welcome Ms. Theresa “Kim” Bynum-Powell, as the new Assistant Director!!!   We are most excited as we look forward to your youthful vision, faithfulness, and commitment to the Team and its programs!!!
