Meet Daren Ramesar

Current title/school? PE teacher at Miller Heights Elementary

What inspires you to work in Belton ISD? The Big Red community is the absolute best! From our amazing kiddos, to a second-to-none admin team at both the campus and district level, I can’t imagine being any place else.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself. I flew Blackhawk helicopters in the army. I was deployed multiple times and have flown a variety of missions from humanitarian aid, to air assaults, to medical evacuation, and everything in between. I’ve even flown presidents and various heads of state.

What was a pivotal moment in your career? The first time I taught at Miller Heights as a substitute teacher, I knew I needed to be there. The kiddos at my campus are the reason I wanted to come back, and they’re what makes me want to stay.

Academics? Master's degree in public administration from Webster University.
