    Hello Cannon family and friends!

    My name is Valerie Balbaugh and I am entering my 12th year as an educator this year.

    I am blessed and excited to be a part of the amazing Cannon family!

    Education: Bachelors Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from The University of Texas at San Antonio

    About Me: I started my teaching career in San Antonio, Texas teaching Pre-K one year, and then Kindergarten one year. After those first two years, I moved with my husband to Stephenville, Texas where I taught a combined age 1st and 2nd grade class, for one year in a small rural school, and then taught Kindergarten for the next three at the Kindergarten campus in Stephenville. After this, my husband and I moved to Weatherford, Texas where I taught one year of 1st grade, and then 2nd grade for four years. We also started our family in Weatherford, where we had our two daughters, Zoe, age 4, and Grace, age 2. My husband is the youth minister for First United Methodist Church in Grapevine.

    Welcome to my class! I call my students “Balbaugh’s Besties”, so you will see this on many things! I love my students and getting to know all about their families and helping each one achieve their dreams. I cannot wait to share and learn with my new Besties!
