Mrs. Mercedes Balke

Hello and Welcome!

I will be teaching Middle School Special Education here at Cole Camp R-1.

I have my Bachelor's in Special Education from Central Methodist University, my Master's in Educational Leadership from Northwest Missouri State University, and I am currently working towards my  Education Specialist - Generalist degree from Northwest Missouri University.

I live outside of Cole Camp with my husband Christopher on his family farm with our two children Kadence and Michael who both attend Cole Camp. I am big into my crafting and photography. I enjoy getting able to make projects and capturing moments!
