Physical Education and Health

Hello, my name is Joe Balvanz.  I have been teaching Physical Education in Ankeny since 2006.  I am also the Head Varsity Baseball Coach for Ankeny High School. I have a BA in Physical Education and Health from Simpson College, as well as a  Masters of Education from Viterbo University. 

My wife Jen Balvanz teaches Kindergarten at Prairie Trail Elementary.  We reside in Ankeny with our two sons Grady and Brooks. In my spare time I enjoy playing sports, cheering on the Hawkeyes, and spending time with my friends and family.  Please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.

Go Hawks,
