Meet Elizabeth Cancel

Elizabeth Cancel

Current title/school? Eighth grade science teacher at Belton Middle School. I also serve as the Science PLC Lead.

What inspires you to work in Belton ISD? I joined BISD right out of college and it has been a blessing to foster a love of science in the community over the past 12 years. I have enjoyed getting the opportunity to teach siblings of former students over my time in BISD. I also feel like a valued educator and that my voice matters.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself. I am teaching in the classroom that I started my career in 12 years ago.

What was a pivotal moment in your career? The moment that I realized a former student of mine was going to be teaching 8th grade science in our district alongside of me. Talk about making your teacher heart happy!! I always promised myself that I would never be the reason why a student wouldn’t like my content area.

Academics? Bachelor of Science in Education (Life Earth Science concentration) from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor
