Simmie Belonga

Certified Physical Education Aide

Simmie Belonga Bio

My name is Simmie P. Belonga. I am a Certified PE Aide at Reuben Johnson Elementary. I was born and raised in Shreveport, LA.  I graduated from Booker T. Washington HS in Shreveport and received my B.S. in Business Administration from Grambling State University.  I later studied Criminal Justice at Tulane University in New Orleans. I began my career in business as a bank teller in Shreveport and then later worked as a policy service representative for a life insurance company.  Upon moving to New Orleans, I joined Prudential Insurance Company as a policy service representative for three years. I also worked in the gaming industry in human resources for several years.  When my church found itself without an administrative assistant, I accepted that position until Hurricane Katrina in 2005.  I came to Texas to live with my sister and began my employment with MISD as a substitute teacher.  I have always been an advocate for fitness, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and childhood obesity awareness, so becoming a certified PE Aid has helped me continue my focus in those areas.
