I am Stacey Ballard. I am from NC originally but I lived in Spain and Texas before moving to Las Vegas 11 years ago. My college major was Spanish and Pediatric Psychology. I did an alternative route to teaching certification. Languages are a wonderful thing to me. I speak Spanish fluently and 5 others somewhat. This is my 19th year of teaching, and I have taught everything from kindergarten to fifth grade. Teaching is not just my job; it’s my hobby and my calling! I have worked for CCSD and other charter schools here. I can’t imagine being so fulfilled in any other profession. I have 2 beautiful and energetic kiddos: Dorian (15) and Lilith (12). Things have been so different at home, but I love every bit of it. In my rare spare time I love to craft and make things. I love to hike, skate, be around water and explore thrift stores. I am excited to start my 2nd year as a part of the SHPS family.
