Me, in Delhi, India, July 2011

rickysplace is the creation of me, Ricky Balthrop, a high school economics and statistics teacher from Bedford, Texas.  I teach advanced academics economics courses for high school seniors such as Advanced Placement Macroeconomics and International Baccalaureate Economics SL and HL.  I also teach Advanced Placement Statistics.

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematical Studies from Rice University and a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Chicago.

I am very blessed to be married to my best friend and partner of 32 years, and I have 4 challenging children.  We also have two cats and two Shiba Inus, which if you don’t know are very cute but very interesting dogs.

I recently was on a Fulbright Hays Group Project Abroad, traveling to India for a month to investigate India’s economic development activities.

Anything else you want to know, just ask me.
