Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Melissa Ballard

My name is Melissa Ballard and I am excited to be teaching Kindergarten and 1st Grade at Edison School this year!  What I enjoy most about teaching elementary students is their eagerness to learn, getting to know their unique personalities, and seeing those "light bulb" moments while they are learning.  I have a passion for education and a drive to help students flourish in their elementary years.  My goal is to provide my students with challenging and enjoyable learning experiences.   

A little background on me:

This will be my 2nd year teaching at Edison.  I have a Bachelors of General Studies degree with minors in Child Development and Psychology as well as an Associates of General Studies with a minor in Education.  I grew up in Fort Worth, Texas and moved with my husband and children to Colorado in 2009.  I have 7 children (2 that have graduated from Edison) and I have worked with children most of my adult life.  I look forward to getting to know your children this school year!
