Myrna Balmaceda is my maiden name, I was born and raised in Ciudad Obregón, Sonora, México. I was offered my first teaching job in México at the age of 19. I had just graduated as Executive Assistant at the time. It has been a great journey, I have been in the classroom for 17 years and I truly have loved every minute of it.
About 10 years ago I decided to pursue my Administrative Credential and with the support of great mentors and friends I was successful. I been an Administrator for 7 years, 5 of those years have been here at Norton Science and Language Academy.
Helping others is my passion but the love of my life are my two children. Bryan who is 19 years old and on his 2nd year attending Humboldt State University and Ruby who is 14 years old attending Oak Hills High School.
My father taught me the love for teaching students and their families. He he also showed me how amazing it is to travel and the importance of spending quality time with family and friends.
Since a very young age I realized I wanted to become an educator. My father taught me the love for the students, families, teaching and the commitment that comes with it. I want to change the world one student at a time.
