For our LEADer Feature this week, we would like to recognize one of our Wildcat Rockstars, Mrs. Ballard!
"Having been at Old Kentucky Home Middle School since 2015, I bring a variety of interests and experiences to a position I thoroughly enjoy. After graduating from Butler Traditional High School in Louisville in 2001, I attended Spalding University on a track and cross country scholarship. Following a restructuring of the athletic program there, I transferred to the University of Louisville where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Health and Performance in 2006, followed by a Master of Arts in Teaching in 2007. I taught physical education and health for the Archdiocese of Louisville for eight years at Notre Dame Academy in Louisville and St. Gregory School in Nelson County. After completing a Master of Education in Special Education LBD, also from U of L, I accepted my current position with Nelson County Schools. My husband, Bart, and I are the parents of two boys, Kevin and Bart. And I continue to run whenever I can and enjoy competing in 5 K and charity events. "
