I only wish I hadn't taken Mr. Balkcom for granted when I was a student because his wisdom is valuable. He is an authentic philosopher king. Over a decade later I still learn from the copy of The Great Dialogues of Plato he gave to me as a gift of inspiration.

Mr balkcom is cool, some essays are difficult but it is a college level class so be prepared to present sat and read the books.

Mr. Balkcom was always a tough teacher but his methods are effective. I learned a great deal from him and improved my writing skills vastly. He helped me to improve my SAT scores enough to earn 100% Bright Future scholarship at FSU. So I'm extremely grateful for his very inspirational teaching.

Has inspired me in my teaching from teaching me so many years ago. He made some potentially boring writing lessons so much fun and so relevant!

The overall English Dept. strength stems from his amazing leadership. I'll never forget him or any of the other Eng teachers I had at STA. So glad Ms. Teesch picked his resume out of the pile.

He truly cares. Once he retires from STA, no one can ever fill his shoes. He has left his mark and legacy

V. brilliant man. He teaches (really knows!) great material, and will not add literati spin. He taught me how to write well. Moreover, he is witty and caring.
