    In the district's fall 2020 Employee Spotlight feature, we have highlighted three district employees. Faculty and staff were randomly selected from the district’s administration, professional staff and support staff. Here, you may find more information about Aaron Barto, Sandy Houser and April Mix.

  • When Barto started at Bellefonte Area School District in 2000, he was the only administrator with a cell phone. Fast-forward more than 20 years and the longtime director of physical plant said technology is one of the biggest things that have changed during the course of time on the job. A couple years ago, he was also named the district's school safety and security coordinator. Read more, here.

  • Houser first applied for a job at Bellefonte Area School District and under the impression she would be working as a paraeducator with special needs students. When she found out there weren't anymore openings available, she was instead recruited to work in the kitchen at Bellefonte Area Middle School --  which 32 years later you can still find her working with colleagues she said are more like family.

  • When Mix walks into her second-grade classroom at Bellefonte Elementary School, she becomes more than just a teacher – she also acts like a mom, friend, doctor, nurse and mentor. The diversity of the job is one of the things she said makes teaching the best profession in the world -- and it's also something she now gets to share with her son who started kindergarten this school year at the same school she teaches at.
