• A Little About Mrs. Ballard 

        I was born and raised in Clover, and I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education and my Master's Degree in Reading at Winthrop University.  I have been a teacher in Clover for 21 years and have taught grades 4, 2, 1, and Pre-K.  I am very excited to start in my new position as the reading interventionist at Griggs Road this year.

        My husband and I have a 9-year-old daughter named Katie who keeps us very busy.  She is a Girl Scout, a competitive dancer, and a fourth grader at Griggs Road Elementary, so I am very actively involved in our school and community, both as a teacher and as a parent.
