Mrs. Sandra Ballesteros

ELA Department Chair
English II Teacher

Hello Students!

      I am so excited to begin my 17th year teaching, with 8 of them being here at Pioneer High School.  I earned a Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Texas Pan American and I am certified in English Language Arts and Reading grades 8-12. I also earned certifications in English as Second Language and Special Education.

I believe that ALL students have the potential to learn and succeed when they are in a n environment where they feel respected and cared for. That is exactly what I strive for in my classroom every day. When you walk in, you become family.

I set high expectations and provide challenging lessons in order to prepare you for not only the E.O.C. exam, but for the next chapter of your lives. It will not be easy, but with a positive attitude and determination, you will succeed!
