Mrs. Cathy Ballenski has a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work and a Master’s Degree in Human Development and Family Relations. She used her skills homeschooling her seven children, all but the youngest of whom were taught at home through high school. During those years she attended extensive educational training seminars in order to expand her abilities and experience. She has taught gymnastics to young children and has worked with Home Schooling Curriculums.
The year before Loveland Classical opened, she was a teacher’s aide with first graders at Liberty Common, which put her into a charter school environment. There, she fell in love with the Core Knowledge curriculum. She has a Highly Qualified status in Elementary Education, a passion for children, and began teaching kindergarten in the inaugural year of LCS.
She feels privileged to be part of LCS staff, where students are offered high quality curriculum using a Classical approach, where character is taught, and where parents are encouraged to be involved in the education of their children.
