Mr. Ballines

Hello everyone!  I’m Mr. Ballines and this is my first year teaching Physical Education here at JJL.  I graduated from Northern Illinois University with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education as well as a Health endorsement.  When I am not occupied with school work I am extremely busy running around with my 2 year old son and 7 month old son, which can be similar to teaching because every day brings a new fun adventure.  It's been really awesome working with all of my students so far and I look forward to the rest of the school year.

Please feel free to contact me at any time if you ever have questions or concerns.
