Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Nikki Powell, Ed. S.
My name is Nikki Powell. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management from the University of Phoenix. Also, a Masters in Secondary Education/Reading from Northern Arizona University. And, an Educational Specialist degree in Educational Leadership/Policy Studies from The George Washington University. I am currently completing an Ed. D. in Organizational Leadership from Grand Canyon University.
I have eight years of classroom experience. My teaching background is in Language Arts and Reading. This will be my 7th year in administration. I started as the Dean of Students at Metro Tech High School. Then, I moved to the Assistant Principal position at La Joya Community High School.
Personally speaking, I was born and raised in Indiana, and I am a huge Indianapolis Colts fan. So, working here at DVMS (Colts) is pure serendipity. I enjoy traveling, reading, shopping, and football. I have one son. He is currently finishing college and working part time in the Pendergast school district. Last, but not least, I have one dog, a white, miniature schnauzer of 14 years, named Kasper.
This year we will make every effort to continuously improve and focus on student results. We welcome parents to join us and participate in school events as well as speaking in the classroom to help highlight careers and illustrate career pathways for our students.
I look forward to working with you and our students!
Nikki L. Powell, Ed. S.
