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

    I graduated from The University of Southern Mississippi in 2015 where I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. This is my fifth 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.
