I have been in education for 18 years where I joined NISD as an Instructional Assistant at Dr. Joe Ward Elementary, Special Education teacher at Howsman Elementary, Special Education Coordinator at Ward Elementary, Administrator Intern at Carlos Coon, Vice-Principal at Christian Evers and Associate Principal at Ward Elementary. I am excited to now be a part of the Powell Family.

Our partnership between home and school is extremely important for the success of every child. We would like to encourage our families to join our Powell PTA and stay connected to the great things that our teachers at Powell are doing every day.
On behalf of our Powell staff, we are ignited and grateful to do the work we do with every child so please do not hesitate to contact us for any questions. or support. Go Thunderbirds!
