Ms. Kim Blaise
Welcome to 3BL in Room 22!
Hello! My name is Ms. Kim Blaise (sounds like "blaze"). I have been teaching at Concord Road for a long time. In addition, I’ve taught in South Korea and Manhattan. I have been lucky to work in a variety of grades: preschool, kindergarten, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade. I love reading, writing, and solving math problems all equally. I especially love social studies and science and I find it particularly exciting to see all of these areas come together, driven by our students’ own ideas and questions.
I hope you are enjoying the last days of summer with your family. My daughters and I love to travel, play tennis, and eat great food. My daughter, Quinn, just began her second year of college and Priya will be in 12th grade at Ardsley High School!
If you get a chance, please ask your child to choose their favorite book to bring to school for the first week. We will also be decorating their writer's notebooks soon, so together you might start looking for photos that inspire and bring joy to your child. (You don't need these on the first day, but you can start getting them together if you'd like.)
If you need to reach me, it is best to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm looking forward to our year together in 3rd Grade. We have many adventures ahead!
