4th Grade

This is my 22nd year of teaching, and my 2nd year teaching at Wallowa.

Extension: 4319 || kblanchard@wallowa.k12.or.us

Building relationships with students and their families is my first priority each year. I also want learning to be engaging and school to be a place kids want to be.

I grew up in Alaska and 3 of the 4 corners of Oregon. I graduated from Wallowa High School and went to college in Idaho. Idaho was growing really fast and needed teachers so I stayed there to teach. Every break from school (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Spring Break, and Summer) I was back here in Wallowa because I love it here! Two years ago, family needs changed and I needed to be back here. Fortunately, there was a 4th Grade opening and I got the job! I am so happy to be back in Wallowa!
