Mrs. Lasma Jekabsone-Berrouet
Greetings Robinson family!
My name is Lasma Jekabsone-Berrouet and I am honored to be your newly appointed Assistant Principal at Robinson Middle School.
This will be my 12th year as an educator. I taught middle and high school Math courses and coached basketball and track in Killeen ISD for 9 years. Most recently I was the 11th grade Math facilitator and the Math department chair at the Plano ISD Academy High School.
I was born and raised in Latvia, a small country in north-eastern Europe. Growing up I was a keen learner and had the desire to become a teacher. It has been a dream come true to be able to fulfill my calling of serving others.
A college basketball scholarship brought me to the U.S. I graduated from Florida International University, in Miami, FL, with a B.B.A. in International Business. In later years I continued my education and pursued a Master’s degree in Mathematics at Texas A&M in Central Texas. I also hold a Principal Certification from Lamar University, Beaumont, TX.
My educational philosophy is rooted in a growth mindset. I am certain that together with each other’s support, we can ensure social-emotional and academic growth and success for every child.
When I am not at school, I love spending time with my family. My husband Richard is an officer in the United States Army, and we are raising our two sons Benjamin (10) and Collin (7). I enjoy gardening, cooking, coaching youth basketball and walking our chihuahua ChaCha.
I am wishing everyone a great school year and I look forward to getting to know our families, students and staff, as well as connecting with the diverse Robinson community.
