I was part of the last class he taught before he retired, so I am officially a BTS (Balsley taught student). Beginning of the school year I really didn't like him. His humor was drier than I was used to and his class was hard. I ended up breaking my wrist that year and it was the hand I wrote with, so I ended up having to stay after class for school a lot. If you are brave enough to talk and ask for help, he is the nicest teacher ever. Really wish he was there still so I could come say hi!
He may have an "unorthodox" style, but he is a great teacher.
Mr. Balsley is awesome! he was my favorite teacher well one of them they are all so nice! he liked to have fun in his class yet still learn you do have to try though or you'll fail. he's always nice(:
told me i could be president... i wonder why... i only managed a C in that class for pre-Algebra. Now in Algebra II I have a B+ - A range. Always wondered...
