Souper Bowl of Caring North Texas is excited to announce that Alison Beazley, an educator who has been teaching for over 16 years and currently teaches at the Winston School in Dallas, Texas has been nominated and voted in to serve on the Souper Bowl of Caring Board of Directors. When asked why she wanted to serve on the board, she responded "I have always felt a sense of urgency when it comes to hunger in our community. If a student comes to school hungry, it is terribly hard to learn, even when a student is motivated to do it. The fact that the Souper Bowl of Caring is a national effort that has local impact is hugely important to my choice to be so involved. I am very excited to get to be a part of the organization!"

What attributes do you admire most in your students? I admire students who are eager to learn and who are interested in what is going on in the world around them. They connect their reality with others so that they might contribute positively in whatever way they can.

What did you want to be when you grew up? I have always wanted to work for the Children's Television Workshop as a writer for Sesame Street. I have had a lifelong fascination with all things created by Jim Henson.

What is your favorite book and movie? My favorite book is The Shack by William P. Young. My favorite movie is On Golden Pond. They really underscore the complexities of family and spiritual relationships.
