Meet Mrs. Ballard

Hello, my name is Mrs. Laura Ballard.  I am the School Library Media Specialist at the Early Elementary School.  I absolutely love working in the Early Elementary school and I love being a media specialist and teacher.  I am a graduate of Indiana University.  I have worked in Mattawan Early Elementary for 17 years and have been in the teaching profession for 29 years.

When I am not teaching I love to walk, read, and spend time with my family and friends. I also enjoy discovering different ways to learn information.

My hope is all of my Early Elementary friends will find books in our Media Center which opens their imaginations and minds to the joy and pleasure of reading.  It brings me great joy to be a small part in the process of growing readers and seekers of information.
