Southwest Career and Technical Academy

Mr. Ball Classroom Website


Hello students, parents, and anyone else who accidentally or purposely landed on my page. I am probably new to this year's students, so I figure I should probably introduce myself and give you a little inside info on me.

First off, I graduated college with a BA in Art, not a teaching degree. I worked for several years in Graphic Design and bounced around other careers before discovering the rewarding world of teaching. I received my Business and Industry license in the state of Nevada that allows me to use my education and work experience and allow me to teach young minds. Nothing brings me more joy than teaching young people and helping to pass on my knowledge to others. Well, except maybe lasagna. That brings me a lot of joy as well. And chocolate chip cookies :-)

Enough about me. Ask the current students about themselves and their experiences here at SWCTA and I’m sure they will have nothing but great things to say about their days here. I know I’m ecstatic to be here.
