Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Jennifer Ballines

I am the Special Education  Teacher for Kindergarten. This is my 6th year at Tibbott Elementary, but I started teaching in the Valley View School District in August 2007.  My first two years I worked at B.J. Ward Elementary School as a Supported Education and Resource Teacher. Then, I was at Hermansen Elementary School for five years as one of the Autism Teachers in the Structured Teaching and Learning Room (STLR) program. I am originally from Omaha, Nebraska and attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where I received my degree in Education. I also have my Masters in Curriculum Instruction with ESL specialization.

I enjoy working with children and love seeing them grow in so many ways, academically, socially, and as individuals.   I’m looking forward to a great year!
