Hello, my name is Mrs. Ballard. This is my 11th year teaching. I have taught kindergarten for 10 years and 1st grade for one year. I love teaching, spending time with animals (3 dogs, 4 cats and a rat), crafting, and spending time with my family. I have a daughter that is also in kindergarten. I love watching kids learn. There is nothing better than watching the light shine bright when they learn something new.
