This is me when I was in kindergarten.
Hi. I'm Mrs. Bloes (pronounced Blaze). I teach kindergarten at Mockingbird Elementary. I grew up in Manning, Iowa, a small town about 90 miles northeast of Omaha. I received a Bachelor's Degree at the University of Northern Iowa, majoring in both elementary and early childhood education. After college I began teaching at Mockingbird. Later, I received a Master's Degree in elementary education with an emphasis in language arts at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. This is my eighteenth year at Mockingbird, teaching kindergarten the entire time. In my free time I like working out, scrapbooking, and spending time with my husband, Jeff, my son, Dane, and my daughter, Laci.
