That's because she is not only the proud product of Compton Unified schools -- Caldwell Elementary School, Walton Middle School, and her alma mater Compton High School -- but also the child of a former Compton schools educator.
As a student Belinda noticed how her mother Ruby Perry was a constant presence at her school and how she regularly communicated with her teachers in order to make sure she succeeded in class.
Today, with assistance from her colleague Margarita Ruelas, her mission is to inform and teach parents everything they need to know to support their children's academic goals.
"I'm passionate about parents being involved," she said.
Helping Compton High prepare students for college and career is never far from Belinda's mind, partly because she is on the brink of completing of earning her Bachelor's in Business Administration from Cal State Dominguez Hills.
When she's not busy recruiting new parent volunteers, she is hosting workshops at the school's Parent Center to bridge the gap between students learning at school and at home.
"We teach them how to access our ParentLink and Aeries system, which gives them access to their children's grades and syllabus, what papers and projects are due...We also teach them how to use computers, software, and the Internet," she said. "We teach parents how to take Cornell notes, which students must use in college."
Belinda explained that when parents learn what students must know, they're better able to help them with schoolwork. "If a student is working on a PowerPoint presentation, parents can say, 'Oh I know how to do that. Let me know if you need help.'"
She added that because high school students are at an age where they must make important life-changing decisions regarding their future, it's especially important for parents to be involved in their education.
"Right now these students have to make decisions about college, about financial aid, and what they're going do when they graduate. That's why we need parents active in high school students' lives," she said.
"Parents might think that once their kids reach ninth grade they don't need as much help from them, but if you talk to the students they still want their moms and dads involved," she said.
