Hi! My name is Tiffany Balencia and I am the 6th grade science teacher at JJHS! I am also the U.I.L. sponsor for the 6th, 7th, & 8th grade Dictionary Skills Teams, and the assistant high school softball coach. This is my 4th year here at JJHS, but I have been working in education going on 8 years now. I am a proud graduate of Natalia High School and an even more proud graduate of Texas A&M University- San Antonio. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Science. I am married to my wonderful husband, who is my number one supporter, and we have one beautiful daughter. Family means everything to me, and I consider ALL of my students MY FAMILY!!
