Meet Jay Walker

Current title/school? Business teacher and certified INCubator teacher at Lake Belton High School

What inspires you to work in Belton ISD? What inspired me to teach was molded by my own experiences of school life. I was fortunate to have teachers who were driven to help me to achieve and prepare me for wider society. I want my students to know my classroom is a safe and fun environment where learning takes place.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself. I lived in Germany.

What was a pivotal moment in your career? In 2004, I quit my job as a general manager. This was the best decision I've ever made in my life. It was quite possibly the most terrifying, yet exciting, day of my life. I went from being terrified of the uncertainty to embracing it, and eventually turned it into an asset. In less than four months, I opened a successful cheer and dance studio.

Academics? Bachelor of Science in business administration from Methodist University in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
