Meet Ms. Powers

Karima Powers - Counselor

This is my 2nd year at Duncanville High School Collegiate Academy, as a School Counselor and my 11th year in Education. I obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Houston and a Master’s Degree in Psychology from Texas Southern University in 2006. I have served in various capacities in education; a Special Education Teacher, AP Psychology Teacher and English Teacher. I have also served as a Transition Specialist and a Reading Instructional Coach before settling in as a School Counselor, which is my desired position and personal passion.

My goal is to provide all students with assistance to achieve academically, socially and vocationally in order to be productive citizens in a 21st century society. It is a collaborative effort that includes the support of students, parents, faculty, staff, and community stakeholders. Excellence Every Way, Every Day is my practice, and working with Students and Families is my Passion!
