My name is Ms. Powell and I'm the PSI (Preparing Students for Independence) Teacher, here at Yates. I am a proud product of HISD, graduating from Kashmere HS in 1993. I've been in Education for 25 years and this is my 11th year at Yates HS. I graduated from the University of Houston-Downtown with honors (Cum Laude) in 2006. Some of my favorite things to do include:  journaling, adult coloring, listening to music, reading, and exercising. I am super excited about the school year and look forward to meeting each of you!
