Ms. Koren Powell-Andrus

Hi Blue Jays,

My name is Ms. Powell. This year I will be self-contained and have moved to 1st grade.  I was born and raised in Houston, Texas.  I graduated from Mirabeau B. Lamar High School.  I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree from Sam Houston State University in Criminology and Corrections and a Master of Arts degree from Prairie View A & M University in Sociology. I even went back to school after receiving my degrees to become a teacher.  This past year I went back to school, attending Lamar University where I obtained a Certificate as an Educational Diagnostician. This will be my twelfth year in education.  Six years were spent at Stafford Elementary, where I also served as a part-time reading interventionist. I came to FBISD in 2019.  In addition to elementary school, I taught Sociology part-time at Houston Community College.  I am the proud mother of two beautiful daughters and a rambunctious 5-year-old dog that keeps us very busy.  My older daughter is a graduate of Prairie View A & M University (PV) and my younger daughter will be a junior at Prairie View this fall.  Goooooo Panthers!!! In my spare time, I enjoy reading, shopping, watching movies, and spending time with my family.  I have a love of teaching and a love of learning.  I am looking forward to instilling a growth mindset and establishing life-long learners.  I cannot wait to see the BRIGHT light shine in 1st grade!!
