Hello and welcome to 2nd grade! My name is Alicen Balius.

    I graduated from The University of Southern Mississippi (USM) in 2015 with my Bachelor’s Degree. I am currently attending USM again for my Master's in Elementary Eduation.  This is my sixth year teaching here at West Elementary. I am happy to collaborate with you and watch your child grow! My goal is to ignite the same fire for learning in your child that my teachers instilled in me.
