Mrs. Tequilla Balfour


I am eager to serve as your scholar's 2019-2020 English/language arts teacher. I look forward to all that we will accomplish together this school year. I grew up in Atlanta, GA and called it home until summer 2018 upon moving to Jacksonville with my Marine husband. 

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in English Education from the University of Georgia (certified to teach grades 6-12) and taught in Gwinnett County, GA. During my first year of teaching, I received my gifted endorsement certificate to add onto my teaching license. I am currently in my last year of my Master of Education degree in Instructional Technology through Kennesaw State University, set to graduate in May 2020. I will also graduate with an online teaching endorsement from KSU. I am anxious to embed the ideas I learn through my master's program into my classroom, especially with HCMS being a 1-to-1 school. I am looking forward to a great school year!

Please feel free to reach out to me if there are ever any questions or concerns.
