Welcome to Mrs. Blanke's Webpage!
Thank you for visiting my webpage! I love teaching reading and I love middle schoolers; both keep me young and make me smile.
This 2021-2022 school year will begin my 26th year of teaching at Wydown Middle! Prior to being a reading specialist at Wydown, I taught for Special School District both as a teacher assistant and then as a special education teacher in University City. I was born and raised in St. Louis.
In my free time, I love to read, shop, eat pasta, and go on long walks, preferably in Colorado! I really enjoy doing all these things I love with my family; I have been married to Greg for 22 years. We have 2 daughters, Natalie, who is 17, and Alyssa, who is 15, and 2 dogs, Riley and Murphy.
