My name is Bianca Balderas. I currently teach Math, Science and Social Studies here at Highlands Elementary. I grew up in Houston, Texas, and attended high school in Deer Park ISD. I will never forget who my favorite teachers were growing up. They were very caring and nurturing people, and that meant a lot to me as a child. I feel that played a big part in what motivated me to become a teacher. I attended the College of Education at the University of Houston- Main Campus, and graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor's degree of Science in Teaching and Learning. In my free time, I love to do yoga and play volleyball or games with friends.
