Mrs. Tracy Balow
Hello, all! My name is Mrs. Tracy Balow, and this is my 30th year in education. I have been a Mathematics teacher in the Alvord Unified School District for 26 of these 30 years. Currently, I am teaching at Hillcrest High School, and for the 2018-2019 school year, I will be teaching IM2 and IM1. For the last three years at Hillcrest High School, I taught PreCalculus/Trigonometry Honors and Regular and IM1, and the year before that I taught Algebra 2 Honors and IM1. What an awesome four years of teaching amazing students back in the USA! Previously, from 2010-2014, I was living and teaching in Valdemoro, Spain (a suburb of Madrid). My time in Spain was definitely one of the most memorable and rewarding times of my life. I highly recommend Spain! Before my move to Spain. I first taught at Arizona Middle School from 1989-2002, and then later at Villegas Middle School when it opened in 2002, until June 2010 when I moved to Spain. During these 21 years, I have taught Geometry, Algebra, PreAlgebra, Math 7, Math 8, Math for Success, and Computer Literacy. I am availble for extra help/tutoring before school, lunch, and after school until 2:45 pm most every day (depending on meetings and other duties). PLEASE take advantage of my help/expertise for any hlep your child needs with math.
