Ms. Ballard

Welcome to Fourth Grade at Capitol Hill!

I am looking forward to an exciting year! This is my fifth year at Capitol Hill. Fourth grade is an awesome year full of field trips and creative adventures!

I grew up in Iowa City. I recevied a BA in Art History from the Univerity of Iowa. I then spent time working on an archeological dig in Italy. After that, I moved to New York City and had a lot of fun working for Sesame Street and studying to become a teacher. I earned my master's degree in education from Hunter College.

I live in Minneapolis with my fiance, Jay.  In my free time, I like to be outside biking and walking. I also enjoy yoga, cooking good meals, traveling, reading, listening to music, and gardening.

I look forward to a wonderful year!
