Dear Parents,

Thank you for visiting my website. A strong home to school connection and relationship is vital to your child's success and our website is one way to create that bond. I hope that you find our website helpful, informative, and fun!

You will find over one hundred websites on the following pages. All of them have been checked and reviewed. It's important to note that addresses and content do change from time to time. If you find that this has occurred, I would appreciate it if you would notify me as this will keep the website safe for everyone.  

If you would like to contact me, you will always find me out at the gate after school. You may also leave a message on voice mail, or you may email me.
Email is a great alternative, but please do not leave a message for pick-up, homework, or matter that requires a timely reply as I often do not have time to
check messages until after school. You may contact me via email by clicking on my name.
Mrs. Blount

Thank you in advance for supporting our academic and social goals.

I am so very fortunate to have been at Gladstone Elementary my entire teaching career. A lot of changes have come and gone since I stepped into Room 7 twenty-nine years ago! All thirty years have been spent teaching second graders (In 96-97 I taught a first/second grade combination class.) Second grade and I seem to fit like a perfect pair of comfy shoes!

I attended the University of Santa Barbara and received my teaching credential from Cal State Fullerton. In 2006 I earned my masters in Elementary Curriculum and Instruction from the same institution.

Here are some quick facts about me:

*I have been married for 20 years to my best friend and husband, Will. I have a terrific stepdaughter, Megan. She has a wonderful husband named Robert. 
*I like to watch cooking shows and decorating shows on HGTV.
*I love, love, love to read!
*I enjoy going to the movies.
*I enjoy visiting museums and historic places and find them fascinating.
*Some day I would love to travel the globe.
*I used to collect frogs, but right now I am taking a little break from them.
*Favorite color: green
*Favorite food: Mexican
*Favorite drink: water, raspberry iced tea, and Starbucks
*Favorite books: mysteries 

*I love, love, love teaching and instilling the lifelong love of learning to my students.
