Dear Decker Elementary Community,
My name is Ms. Brandon Powell. I am a native to Austin and have served as a teacher and an administrator in MISD for 15 years starting at Decker Elementary. My most recent experience working with the Decker Elementary Community has been the last two years working to rebuild the Decker brand and coming out of IR status. We worked hard to meet standard and will continue to make sure that our students are provided with a well-rounded education that will ensure them to have a successful future.
It is with great pleasure and honor to be chosen to be the Principal of Decker Elementary Fine Arts Academy. Decker has a strong student-centered culture that I’m ecstatic to be a part of again. The college and career awareness and culture is the start to a great future for the students of Decker Elementary. Bringing the Fine Arts Programs to the Decker Community is not only going to expose our students to new opportunities but it is also going to help our staff strengthen the love of learning for our students.
As the Principal, I am committed to make sure that the students' interest and needs shape and help guide the instruction and extracurricular activities. However, above everything else, a great education would not be possible without the collaboration of students, parents, staff and community members. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or great ideas. The DES door is always open.
I look forward to an AMAZING year!
Ms. Brandon Powell
Decker Elementary Fine Arts Academy Principal
