A Little About Me~ Mrs. Ballard

Some of my fondest childhood memories are playing school with my brothers or dolls.  Even though I struggled as a student, I always loved going to school.  I grew up attending Spring Branch schools; I went to Valley Oaks, Spring Branch Middle, and Memorial High School.  After graduating, I attended Texas Woman’s University in Denton.  I did not like being so far away from home so I transferred to University of Houston where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies. 

I began teaching in 2005.  I spent a year at Rummel Creek Elementary, three years at Spring Branch Elementary, and the rest of my time has been here at Wilchester.  After twelve years in kindergarten I have decided I am ready to give Pre-K a try.  I am very excited! I truly love coming to work each day.  Teaching is my true passion, and I take my job very seriously.   I truly care about each and every student in my class. 

In July 2014 I married my sweet husband Ryan, and on August 24, 2015 (the first day of school!) I gave birth to our sweet daughter Autumn.  On March 8, 2017 we were blessed with our precious son Jerry.  Our life is filled with love and joy!

I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially.  It is my desire to help students reach their fullest potential in all areas of development.  I believe in teaching to the whole child by presenting curriculum that involves the interest of the child and makes learning relevant to life.  I will incorporate themes, integrated units, projects, group work, individual work, small groups, and hands-on learning in order to meet the needs of each child.  I will tie learning into the world community to help children become caring and active members of society.

 

I have an open door policy, please feel free to contact me at any time.  I am always happy to answer any questions, concerns, or celebrations you may have.  The best way to contact me is via email at [email protected]

Thank you,

Khristina Ballard
