Meet John Wagner

Current title/school? Transportation shop technician

What inspires you to work in Belton ISD? I'm proud to help keep the buses and other vehicles safe to use on regular routes and to and from all activities.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself. In the summers before and during and after my senior year in high school, I worked on school buses. I never thought this would be my full-time job.

What was a pivotal moment in your career? After getting my associate's degree at Universal Technical Institute, I mostly worked on diesel trucks. When I had an opportunity to work closer to home and be with my kids, I took a chance to do something new. I was able to go to my daughter's band and color guard competitions, driving the tractor and band trailer or a bus.
