Mrs. Elise Balderas

I am passionate about my subject matter and aspire to instill that same love of learning within my students. Additionally, I believe each student brings his/her own unique set of knowledge and experience to the classroom which helps to build engaging and thoughtful conversations regarding content matter.

Each class is unique and every day is new because of all the wonderful insight YOU bring into the class.
