Congratulations to Ashwaubenon teacher Lisa Bellile, the latest winner of our WEAC Badger Red for Public Ed promotion! The honor goes to WEAC members in appreciation for their dedication to students. Recipients are treated to a UW Badger athletic event.
Lisa will get VIP treatment at the November 3 UW Badger football game against Rutgers at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison.
Lisa, a Special Education Teacher at Pioneer Elementary School, has worked 16 years for the Ashwaubenon School District. She has experience assisting with choreography in several of the Pioneer Elementary winter musicals. Lisa has been fortunate to attend and support 5th graders on an overnight outdoor education experience at Camp U-Nah-Li-Ya. She is also a part of the PBIS team and the Trauma Sensitive School team.
During the 2017-18 school year, Lisa’s colleagues recognized her as an Outstanding Educator at Pioneer Elementary as someone who goes “above and beyond” in and outside of the classroom.
In the Ashwaubenon community, Lisa has been involved with the Ashwaubenon Swim Club for many years, serving as a board member, and currently assists with apparel and swim coaching.
Lisa started teaching to make a difference in the lives of youth. Recently, she has been reflecting on her purpose. Her ‘why’ is to make connections … to be that person a child looks forward to seeing each and every day, to be that someone students trust and respect, to empower youth in realizing that learning and knowledge are power and that relationships matter, to be mindful that caring and empathy can go a long way, and to spread the kindness and be the change.
