My name is Nancy Barajas (Powell). Teaching is my passion! This year will be my 28th year in education. I have experience in just about every subject and grade level and have held many leadership positions, including assistant principal, in various school districts and colleges in Texas and Georgia. I just love helping students succeed! I honestly couldn't see myself doing anything else more rewarding!
I love learning! I have an Associate of Arts and a Bachelor's of Arts in Spanish Education from Clayton State College and State University and Georgia State University respectively. In 2002, I received my Master's in Educational Administration and Supervision from Georgia College and State University. I am currently entering my final year (only 3 more semesters to go!) at The University of Houston- Clear Lake pursuing my Doctorate in Educational Leadership with a Specialization in Curriculum and Instruction.
I truly believe in every one of my students and have experienced great success from this belief. I think it is so rewarding to keep up with my students and their families even after they leave my classroom. It's exciting to be part of their successes in life! I look forward to another AWESOME year and can't wait to see all of my students EXCEED their potential!
