Hi, my name is Cindy Balmer! This is my 4th year at Hart, and I am so excited to begin this new school year. I was born in Dallas, grew up in St. Louis, and then wound up at Texas Tech…Wreck ‘em! I met my husband Dan there, we moved to Richardson, and here we are years later. We have 2 amazing daughters, Morgan and Maddy, and two dogs, Buddy and George Bailey. Our oldest daughter, Morgan, is married and lives in Little Rock with her husband and our granddaughter, Charlotte. Our youngest daughter, Maddy, is a nurse at Children's Medical Center in Dallas. I knew as a young child that I wanted to be a teacher…after many years and after teaching various grade levels, I can honestly say, it is still my passion in life. “To teach is to touch a life forever”. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, reading, and practicing yoga. I look forward to getting to know you and your children this year. It’s going to be an unforgettable and amazing year!
