Principal's Message

  •  My educational career began in 2008 at PSJA ISD. I have worked as a teacher, coach, behavioral coach, assistant principal and currently principal of PSJA Elvis J. Ballew CCTA P-Tech. As we embark on our first school year of our new redesigned campus, PSJA Elvis J. Ballew  School of Business & Energy, for 2022-2023 school year, I look forward to providing the best possible instruction for our students and community.

    Because as Gary Player said: "The harder you work, the luckier you get."
