Mr. Kurt Balderson
I have always dreamed of working with young people in the high school setting. In 2008, after spending most of my career in corporate America and then as an entrepreneur, I pursued that dream and earned my PA Teaching Certification in Business, Computers, and Information Technology. Since 2009, I have been a High School Business Teacher and absolutely love teaching, mentoring, and providing guidance to students.
Throughout my career, both in the business world and as a teacher, I find myself being the “go to” person for young professionals and students seeking guidance, training and advice based on my knowledge, expertise and wisdom. From personal and school-related issues to college and career choices, young adults of all levels and abilities feel comfortable reaching out to me, truly value my opinions, and take my recommendations to heart. I am inspired when sharing my knowledge and/or helping students make important decisions that will help shape their future lives.
As a Business, Computers, and Information Technology Teacher at Great Valley High School, I have learned how to communicate with and relate to students as their teacher and as a mentor. I understand the challenges and concerns facing students today and how school administrators and staff can be of help. I thoroughly enjoy the students here at Great Valley and appreciate the dedication of all of my colleagues. I look forward to the many years ahead here at Great Valley High School as I further my career in education.
