Mrs. Monica Balderas

Hello Highlands Family!  

My name is Monica Balderas and I am excited to return to Highlands and serve as Assistant Principal.

I moved to Texas 25 years ago from Oklahoma. BOOMER SOONER!! I have been married for 20 years and have 4 children.

This year began my 25th year in education. I taught bilingual 1st grade for 13 years and bilingual 4th grade for 5 years. Later, I served as a bilingual instructional coach for 6 years; five of those years right here at Highlands! I graduated from University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond, Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts and received my Masters of Education in Leadership from Concordia University in Austin.
