Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Susan Balog

I am teaching Second grade at Lacy Elementary.

I grew up in Kansas and earned my teaching degree from the University of Kansas. I have been living in McKinney since 2002.I have been working with students from Pre-K to Fifth grade, but my passion is with second and third graders. My favorite teaching mottos are:"All children can learn, just not the same day or in the same way." and  "My teacher said I could learn it, so I did."  These sum up my teaching philosophy that I must connect what I want to teach to their lives, break it down to successful steps, then give them time to practice until they feel confident and empowered.

I am married with four grown children and two grandchildren. Although my daughters are near and I am able to see my grandkids every week, my son lives in Colorado, so I only see him twice a year.

I love to read and teach. I am learning how to quilt.
