Board of Trustees Recognizes Desi Ballis

The Blaine County School District Board of Trustees would like to recognize Desi Ballis, a literacy coach at Hemingway STEAM School! She joined the school last year and has already made her mark on students, families and colleagues alike. 
Ms. Ballis’ fellow teachers have come to respect and admire the dedication and energy she brings to her work, each and every day. She has even helped other classroom teachers incorporate vocabulary into their lessons and class discussion. 
“Every single day she is the same energetic, happy and positive person,” wrote the colleague who nominated Ms. Ballis for recognition. “The students really respond to her enthusiasm and overall positivity. Her knowledge of teaching literacy is absolutely off the charts. She has so many ideas, lessons and different ways of approaching things. I feel she's able to reach every single student because she always finds a way that they will understand.”
Please join us in congratulating and thanking Ms. Ballis for her amazing work on behalf of our students at Hemingway STEAM!
