Sheli Ballard

English/Language Arts Teacher

Hi, SC Whitmore Family!

At my very core, I am a teacher. I can’t imagine getting more enjoyment or satisfaction from any other profession! Helping students to realize their potential is a privilege and an honor. I didn’t always know that though, and I spent a few years exploring my options in the restaurant industry in New Orleans and the mountains of North Carolina before settling down in the Charleston area. After earning my teaching credentials in Asheville, NC, I drifted on the wind to the Lowcountry 16 years ago and began my journey as an English teacher. Along the way, I met my wonderful husband and we have been able to enjoy many adventures like travelling to Europe and Africa!

I earned a B.A. in Journalism many years ago, but have recently continued my education to earn an M.Ed. in Educational Leadership. I am truly a student at heart and have plans to further my own learning experiences even more! I also enjoy relaxing on the beach with my husband and dog as well as running, cooking, and — of course — reading for pure pleasure!

I have thoroughly loved my time as a part of the SC Whitmore community, which allows me to work with wonderful people from all over South Carolina. I so look forward to working with my English students and their families!
