Kristi Ballard

My name is Kristi Ballard and I am honored to be part of the A.R. Turner Team.  I love teaching in the same district that I attended school at. Willis is Home!  Education has been my passion for most of my adult life.  This is my seventeenth year in Education and my ninth year in a Kindergarten classroom. I received my Undergrad in Education from Sam Houston State University with a minor in Early Childhood and Reading.  My Master's is from the University of North Texas and is in Library and Information Sciences.  I love seeing the light come on when a child learns to read. 

I also serve as a Co-Sponsor for the National Elementary Honor Society.

My husband, Billy and I have been married for twenty-four years. Billy works for the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department as an investigator.  We are the proud parents of two awesome kids!  Our daughter, Meghan, is twenty-two and graduated from Texas A&M University in December with a degree in Political Science with a certificate in Comparative Politics.  She plans to continue her education as she works towards an MBA with an emphasis in Marketing. Our son, Ben, is nineteen and in his freshman year at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma where he is majoring in Theology and Leadership.  I love to read, sing and take pictures.

I am thrilled to be a part of Willis ISD team and I am ready for a wonderful school year!
