Greg Ballweg

Bilingual Instructional Coach

After graduating from the University of Illinois at Urbana – Champaign in 2013, Greg started his teaching career at the same school where he student taught.  For five years he taught 3rd grade dual language (Spanish / English), in Urbana.  His dedication to service, love of new cultures, and desire to be immersed in the Spanish language motivated him to join the Peace Corps in 2019.  Greg served in the Dominican Republic and worked in a remote, village school where he helped teachers improve their Spanish literacy instructional strategies.  Greg is also a proud recipient of the Golden Apple Scholarship that prepares committed teachers to serve in “schools of need” across Illinois.
