9th & 10th Grade Counselor

Hello! My name is Linsey Balmos and I am in my 17th year of education.  I grew up in Mason, a small town on the edge of the Hill Country (Puncher Pride!) and graduated from Texas Tech University in 2004 (Wreck ‘em Tech!). That same year, I began teaching 6th grade mathematics in Blanco, TX. In 2013, I moved to BHS to become the one and only high school counselor. My husband, Scott, and I met while in Blanco and we’ve been married for 14 years.  After receiving a call from Coach Haire to come coach football with him, Scott and I decided to move our family to this wonderful community of Salado. I have the pleasure of working with high school students as the 9th & 10th grade counselor. Leaving our home after 15 years has definitely been a challenge, but the wonderful, kind people we have met here in Salado have helped us all during our transition. I am looking forward to raising our children as Salado Eagles!


The most important thing I have done in my lifetime, is work as a Mom.  Coach Balmos and I have three children. Ryder is a 5th grader at TAE, Harper is a 3rd grader at TAE and Karter is our energetic 4 year old in PreK. 


I hope everyone has an excellent 2020-2021 school year! Please reach out to me if you need anything. Go Ealges!
