Mrs. Leslie Balsamo

Hello and Welcome to my school web page.  I am a product of PNGISD schools.  I attended Catholic School until 4th grade and then started public school my 5th grade year at Ridgewood Elementary.  Once I decided to be a teacher, I knew Special Education is what I wanted to teach.  Right after high school I attended Lamar Univeristy and graduated with a BS in Special Education.  As life often does, plans changed.  Instead of teaching I bagan working in a doctors office and was office manager for 12 years.  Once again life plans changed and I found myself in education using the degree I had obtained.  I am now in my 19th year of teaching at PNGISD and have spent all of these years teaching Special Education.  I firmly believe that all students can learn, and it is my job as their teacher to teach them in the way that they can learn.
