Erin Bass was appointed in January 2021 to fill a vacancy on the Board to represent Area 2. She is a former educator who served on Belton ISD's Journey of a Graduate design team in 2020.
Bass comes from a family of educators and spent 11 years as a teacher or interventionist in Mansfield ISD, Killeen ISD and Belton ISD before becoming a stay-at-home mom. Three of her four children attend Belton schools.
"I've been playing school since I can remember," she said. "Teaching is a part of me."
In the community, Bass is a volunteer and former board member for Foster Love Bell County. With her husband, Andy, she is involved with many ministries at First Baptist Church of Belton including the special needs ministry. The couple has previously led Sunday school classes together.
Bass is a graduate of Texas State University.
“I’m excited to be a part of Belton in a new way and really support kids, teachers and staff. There are a lot of moving parts in a school — let alone in a district — and they’re all important. I’m excited to just be there to help support them.”
