Current title/school? Resource and Inclusion teacher at High Point Elementary
What inspires you to work in Belton ISD? I grew up in Belton ISD and my children attended BISD. I volunteered at both of my children's schools and saw the amazing work that was being done in this district. My daughter's principal at the time, Mrs. Armstrong, was amazing and had a great vision for ALL of the students in her school. I was greatly inspired to join the BISD team.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself. I once performed on a cruise ship with the Belton High School Madrigals.
What was a pivotal moment in your career? I have a daughter with special needs that has attended BISD since she was 3. As a parent, I saw how amazing Special Education was run in our district. I saw the importance of every child being taught to reach their potential. I knew that when I returned to teaching, after being out for 11 years, I wanted to teach students with special needs. I have loved every minute of it and know that it is exactly where I want to be!
