Meet Monika Kalin

Monika Kalin

Current title/school? PEIMS & SiS Specialist at the Administration building (PEIMS stands for Public Education Information Management System - it's the data collection system for gathering student, staff, financial and organization data for school districts.)

What inspires you to work in Belton ISD? The students and assisting them achieve their educational goals. I have also been blessed to work with dedicated teachers and professionals throughout BISD. It is always inspiring to watch our former students give back to the community and achieve milestones they never imagined they could reach.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself. I used to command a M547, M548 and M113 tracked vehicle in the military.

What was a pivotal moment in your career? When a former student came to thank me for not letting him drop out of school. So many times our students become discouraged due to life situations, and it has been rewarding to see them persevere and receive their diploma knowing the hardships they have overcome. We do not always realize the impact we have made in a student’s life until many years after they leave school.

Academics? Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance from the University of Mary-Hardin Baylor
