Current title/school? Math teacher at Belton New Tech @ Waskow
What inspires you to work in Belton ISD? After everything with COVID last year, I’ve never been more proud to work with the people that I do; knowing how we came together to ensure the success of our kids both academically and emotionally makes me beyond proud to work here.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself. I have artwork from my students hanging up behind my desk. Some have graduated from college or gotten full ride scholarships because of their artwork. Some just love to doodle. I love that they want to show it off, and I love hanging it up. I don't know if I'll have enough room next year! Also, when I worked at the Recreation Center in college, I got to watch Michael Phelps practice before the Olympics.
What was a pivotal moment in your career? I’m a math teacher, so for me teaching math is always full of pivotal moments. When students have that “AH HA!” moment, it just reaffirms I’m where I’m supposed to be.
Academics? Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education (English/mathematics) from the University of Michigan.
