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.
