Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Kendria Poydras
I was born and raised in Houston, Texas. After graduating from high school I went on to the University of North Texas where I received my undergraduate degree in marketing. I then moved back to Houston where I began to work for Brink's Armored for about nine years. I left Brinks to begin my career in education. I began my career in education in Fort Bend ISD as a 1st grade teacher for 1 year. I left Fort Bend and made my way to Alvin ISD at Mary Marek Elementary. I have now been in education for 14 years with thirteen of those years right here at Marek.. Here at Marek I taught 1st grade for 6 years and worked in the special education department as a reading resource teacher for one year.
While teaching at Marek I traveled to Prairie View, Texas on the weekends to work on my graduate degree. In 2008 I received my graduate degree in counseling from Prairie View A&M University.
In 2012 I was honored to become the school counselor. I was very excited to begin my counseling career at Marek where I had already had the opportunity to build relationships with the students, teachers and parents!
I have been married to my wonderful husband Anthony for eleven years and we have one amazing little boy, Jackson who is 9 years old. Jackson will be in 4th grade this year!!
