Joan Blasingame, 2011 Teacher of the Year: Old Kings Elementary
FlaglerLive | January 13, 2011
Hello! My name is Joan Blasingame, better known as Mrs. B to my family of students and parents. I am a native of Florida who lived 18 years in the breath-taking high country of Colorado, and then relocated to Flagler County. During those years, I was blessed with three absolutely beautiful children and began my educating career. I owned and operated a Creative Learning Center for three years, and then decided I wanted to join the public school system. I returned to Flagler College, completed my teaching degree and began teaching kindergarten, which I continue to do today after 15 years. My three children attended the University of Florida and I am now, along with my kindergartners, a cheering Gator fan. I share the vision of continuing education with all of my students, encouraging them to be life long learners. I have learned so much from the educational community, but most importantly, that we cannot do anything alone. It takes a community to raise a child, and to raise a teacher. We all learn from and encourage each other. Together we can make a difference in all the lives we touch, especially in the little lives!
