Mrs. Alisha Balak

Welcome to 2nd Grade!


I am so blessed to begin my 17th year of teaching doing what I truly love here in Prosper ISD! My teaching career started in Plano ISD, where I taught first grade for 9 years. I then moved to Folsom and taught kinder for 4 years, and this will begin my 4th year of 2nd grade. 

I am a native Texan from Richardson and continued to move north until I landed in Prosper with my family 9 years ago. This past summer we moved north again to Gunter. Even though I don't live in Prosper anymore, Prosper still has my heart and is a huge part of me. I enjoy traveling, watching movies, any activities near water, and spending time with family and friends. My husband Chris and I have two children named Carter and Presley. Carter will be in 8th grade at Gunter Middle School. He plays for Collin County Baseball Academy and will play football for the Gunter Tigers. Presley will be a 4th grader here at Folsom. She enjoys cheering on her Prosper Eagles, gymnastics, and girl scouts. We also adore Cora, our Doberman Pinscher. She is a little over 2 years but still all puppy and full of energy. 

I am so excited to be your child's teacher and can't wait to see what this year holds. Please contact me with any questions or concerns you have. Looking forward to a great year!
