    Welcome! My name is Lydia Balton. I want to take the time to welcome you and your child to Crowders Creek Elementary School! Clover School District is truly a great place to learn and grow. My goal as a teacher is to make sure your child receives the best education possible! I graduated from Winthrop University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education and received a Master of Education in Curriculum & Instruction (Reading Interventionist) from Concordia University.  I am married to my high school sweetheart, Kyle Balton. We have a precious little boy named Brody and a sweet little girl named Evie! I am excited to begin my 13th year teaching with you and your children! With your help, I'm sure this year will be fabulous!   


    Reading Recovery

    Reading Recovery® is a one-to-one early literacy intervention designed to prevent students at risk of failing to learn to read and write in first grade. By intervening early, Reading Recovery can halt the debilitating cycle of failure for low-achieving students. Reading Recovery enables the lowest-achieving learners to make accelerated progress, catch up with grade-level peers, and profit from regular classroom reading instruction.
