Mrs. Ballard

Welcome Back to the 21-22 School Year! 

I am excited to be teaching my sixth year as a Concord Spider! I will be teaching English III and I this year. In the past I have also been the yearbook advisor and taught English IV at CHS. Previously I taught seventh grade AIG, Scholars, and ELA at CMS for three years. Before that I taught Creative Writing, English II, English I Honors, and Freshman Seminar at Summerville High School in S. Carolina for six years.  I also taught 7th and 8th grade GATE (AIG) at DuBose Middle in Dorchester County for five years. I began my teaching journey teaching English I Honors at The Charleston County School of the Arts. My former career was at The College of Charleston where I was a Div. I head softball coach in the Southern Conference for five years and pitching coach for two years in the TAAC conference.






I will be using our Canvas page to post all lessons and assignments. Every week/class new assignments will be posted. Please pay attention to due dates in Canvas. Parents/guardians, if you would like to follow along in Canvas, go to the Documents tab on the left; there are directions posted there. 

Durante el tiempo que estemos físicamente fuera de la escuela, usaremos nuestra página de Canvas para publicar todas las lecciones y asignaciones. Todos los lunes se publicará un nuevo módulo. Padres / tutores, si desea seguir en Canvas,vaya a la pestaña de documentos a la izquierda; hay direcciones publicadas allí.
