Mrs. Poovey

My name is Michele Poovey and I have had  the privilege of teaching in Plano ISD for 22 years.   Before teaching, I received a Bachelor's of Science in Biology from Texas A&M University and a Masters in Secondary Science Education from UTD.  I have taught  middle school and high school science as well as the AVID elective. I have had the honor of teaching Biology at Jasper High school since 2015.  

During my career, I have been recognized as the beginning teacher of the year at Williams High School and received the Ross Perot Award for new teachers.  I received the Texas Instruments STEM Award at Frankford MS as well as at Jasper HS and have been a finalist for PISD Teacher of the Year.  I have served as an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) staff developer for science for 5 years, where I helped teachers grow and to develop best practices for the classroom.

Teaching young people has always been my passion.  I am committed to providing every student with a positive, supportive environment while providing a challenging learning experience.  My goal is for each student to discover the joy of learning, how they learn and guide them to reach their full potential.
