Mr. Ivery's Introduction
Jacoby Ivery, B.S.
5th Grade Social Studies Teacher
Belt Line Elementary
Bachelors of Science, Dallas Baptist University, December 2014
I have been a P.E. Assistant Teacher in Arlington ISD, for one year, and an College Readiness Coah, at the Salvation Army Youth Education Town. This is my first year as a classroom teacher, and first year here at Lancaster ISD.
As a recent graduate of Dallas Baptist University my goal, and dream, was to become an educator. As a youth minister, I have always had a passion for working with, and inspiring youth.
Prior to working at Lancaster ISD, I worked at the Salvation Army Youth Education Town. There I was an after school tutor and College Readiness Coach. Speaking with thousands of students, and preparing them for the college application process, I became more than just an educator. I became a mentor.
Social Studies is a subject that brings about creativity and richness, through the introduction of culture and social changes. I am excited about my journey here at Belt Line Elementary, and what this amazing year will hold.
"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education."
