I am so proud to say, "I teach the Bulldogs!" Once a Bulldog, always a Bulldog. I am a second-generation Healdton graduate. I graduated from Healdton High School with the Class of 1986. Following graduation, I attended East Central University earning a Bachelor's of Science degree in Business Education. This is my 26th year in education with 12 of those serving the Healdton Bulldogs.
I married my high school sweetheart, Mark Blakemore, in 1987. We have two boys. Derek is a graduate of ECU, a married man and part of the work force at Legal Shield in Ada, and Hayden is a sophomore at ECU. We enjoy following and supporting the Bulldogs in all extra-curricular events.
My philosophy is: "Thirty years from now, it won't matter what shoes you wore, how your hair looked, or the jeans you bought. What will matter is what you learned and how you used it." Great computer skills are a must for any area of the work force today. Even McDonald's has a computerized application system! It is my goal to give the most up-to-date skills to every student I am entrusted.
I feel so blessed to be part of such a great school system that has an awesome set of teachers, administrators, support staff, and, most of all, students!
