Meet Allison Cope

Current title/school? PreAP Geometry teacher at Lake Belton High School

What inspires you to work in Belton ISD? I am inspired to work in Belton ISD because they put the needs of children first. This business we are in is not about us but what is best for the students and their education. BISD gives students many opportunites to be successful in life and follow any dream they may have.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself. My high school class was so small that I graduated as salutatorian of my class but was not in the top 10%!

What was a pivotal moment in your career? A pivotal moment in my career is when I switched from teaching elementary to high school. I graduated with an elementary degree and thought I would always be an elementary teacher. I was so unhappy one year as a previous school district that I took my high school math certification and haven't looked back since. I LOVE teaching high school and seeing my students blossom into young men and women.

Academics? Bachelor of Science in multidisciplinary studies (elementary education) from McMurry University
