Meet Ross Ann Johns

Current title/school? Principal's secretary and registrar at Leon Heights Elementary

What inspires you to work in Belton ISD? First the students and second the staff. I like challenging myself to learn something new and with this job — I do learn something new each day!

Tell us a fun fact about yourself. I went to Leon Heights as a sixth grader and have been an employee here for 31 years. (I was a volunteer before I started working for the district.) I am also the first female who took an auto mechanics class in Belton ISD. In my free time I play with my grandchildren, Kashton and Oaklyn, or quilt and work in my yard.

What was a pivotal moment in your career? When I left the classroom as an aide to become the school's receptionist and then again when I became the principal's secretary.

Academics? Belton High School class of 1976
