My Family All About Mrs. Blakley

          I am super excited to be at Highland Middle School. This is my third year teaching at Highland. Before this year I was at Saginaw Elementary for five years. Both of my sons went to Highland during their middle school years and this is absolutely an amazing school.

         I was born and raised in Batesville, Arkansas. I graduated with my Bachelor's of Science degree in Middle school Education with an emphasis in Math and Science from Arkansas State University. After graduation, I taught 6th grade Science for 3 years at Westside Middle School in Jonesboro, Arkansas.

        My family and I moved here to Texas in August of 2009. My husband and I have been married for 26 wonderful years and we have 3 children. My daughter, Katelyn, is 23 years old and works full time at a daycare. My son, Matthew, is 19 and just graduated from Saginaw High school and plans to attend Tarrant County College this fall. My youngest son, Luke, is 16 and will be a junior at Saginaw High school.  During my free time, I enjoy reading, hanging out with my family, and watching my son's play sports.

     I can't wait to learn more about each of my new students this year!

    I know we are going to have a great year together!
